If "natureza" is feminine why is the masculine "professor" acceptable? Shouldn't "professora" be the only acceptable answer?
Again we have general sentences. "A vida é o melhor professor" In general sense we use the masculine form.
But the "correct" answer is given as both forms.
Why are both versions correct? Do they have slightly different meanings maybe: one more specific to nature, one more generally about teachers? (but I'm not sure how to make sense of that difference).
Is "the best" always "o melhor" or does it change to fit the gender ?
Ele é o melhor professor.
Ela é a melhor professora.
For some reason I thought it was a fixed phrase. O melhor
It changes according to the noun: o melhor, os melhores, a melhor, as melhores.
Is the article necessary?
