I think the use of TV (TV) and fjernsyn (television) is much like the use of fly (plane) and flyvemaskine (airplane). The idea you communicate is basically the same with either choice, but in the given sentence, using TV provides a closer translation of the given sentence.

Why is "Pigen laver mad på fjernsyn" not correct? When i remember correctly, fjernsyn was said to be the translation of television.

It is now fixed ☺

I wrote "fjernsynet" and it was accepted, so maybe it is because in Danish they'd say it's on "the" TV?

i did the same mistake. my guess is that fjersyn is the device and tv is the programs such as here a cooking show

Why no apostrophe in tv'et? In another question, it was suggested on the word.

I took koger insteadt of laver and it wasn't accepted?? Is it wrong to say koge mad ?
