What is the difference between ställde and lade?
Ställa is about placing something in an upright (standing) position, while lägga is about putting something is a horizontal position or just making it lying down.
Maybe it would be okay to say "She laid the keys in the bag"?
'put' is used with containers while 'lay' is used with flat surfaces. 'She put the keys in the bag.', but 'She laid the keys on the table.'
But if it was a big open bag and she specifically set it down flat on the bottom...
I agree, laid, while less common, is not a bad translation. I've reported it.
I thought the definite form (nycklarna) was often used to indicate possession (i.e.: "her keys")
Why is that wrong, exactly?
Same. I would also like to know if this does or doesn't work here.
I wrote "her keys" and was marked wrong. Is it only certain objects (like a bed or wallet) that you can assume belong to the subject of the sentence? I would think keys would be a similar situation.
Shouldn't that be: she puts... Or she does put...?
No, this exercise is for the past tense of verbs. Lade is the past tense of lägga.
Or, if it's the English that causes you doubt, the past tense of put/puts/putting is put.
could "väskan" be used synonymously with "the purse" or (in this specific sentence) "her purse"?
I had the exact same question...
How come "placed" doesn't work here?
I recall reading in another post that sätta was used when putting your hand into something. Would that be OK here then?
Is "en väska" a purse?
Is this word related to "to load"?
He she it puts?
