Just finished basics 1 + 2 and I wondered which version was right because the app gives both - 1. Io mangio una mela 2. Mangio una mela

Yea I got asked to translate 'I drink water' and I put 'Io bevo acqua' but I got it wrong, right was 'Bevo acqua' - anyone know why this is

Both are right - the pronoun is optional. If used it shifts the emphasis to the person doing the eating.
