Heheh how should i know here if it was for a single person or for a plurel? :-P
Contextually, although that said, it's not that common to say ni to a single person, and there's practically never a reason to do so as a foreigner.
So I should use Du here instead of Ni or both are ok?
Either way is fine - use du if it's one person and ni if you're talking to two persons or more.
sadly, nope. Du was NOT accepted ! :-(
Then either you had another error or there was a bug. The solution is correct and I know from having been a course contributor before that it is marked as accepted.
Thank you for this.
Why is "du" not an accepted answer? There is no indication that it is being told to a group of people or a singular person. Both "du" and "ni" should be accepted as correct answers.
du is accepted, actually.
nope, they just rejected my answer :-(
Please see my above response.
What's the difference between ni and du?
du = singular you (thou)
ni = plural you (y'all)
One is singular other is plural in Swedish, but "you" is in use for both in English, that part of the test needs a bit more work i guess, maybe adding images to questions will help.
"Du" (singular) and "ni" (plural) should both be correct.
They're both accepted. But I can see you left an error report (which is great) - your report reads du dricker inte vatten, which means "you don't drink water". The sentence is in the definite: du dricker inte vattnet = "you don't drink the water".
how do we know when it is two or less peoples to say you to???? hajhaj
You can't know, so both options are accepted.
alright- confusing!! Thanks! :)
why not vatten? what's the difference between vattnet and vatten?
The water vs water.
Why can't I find "du" or "ni" in the duolingo dictionary?
No idea, honestly. I don't really know how that works.
I wrote "Du ar dricker inte vattenet" , I guess if I had'nt included "ar", it would have been a correct answer
Yes, that's correct. Swedish doesn't have the "are drinking" construction.
There needs to be clarification on whether plural or not so clicking the word doesnt break learning process. Put a (p) before sentence to denote plurality
We accept both du and ni equally, if that's what you mean?
