I wonder if Duolingo realizes how the Anglo mind will understand this sentence.

Does Danish never require a pronoun in such sentences? Is it always like in English? For example, in German it is der größte, den ich..., like in a lot of other European languages.

Please explain why Det cannot be translated as "That". It was marked wrong as "that is the biggest I have seen."
