Is "those keys" incorrect? Please explain. Many thanks.

That's what I see in the answer.

Oh sorry for my carelessness. I typed "these keys".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Paulenrique

OK. Maybe they wantes "estas chaves" for "these keys".

Is there any difference between "encontrar" and "achar"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Paulenrique

Encontrar = to find, to meet.

Achar = to think, to find.

It shows they can be interchangeable at times, as in the example above.

Why not aquelas chaves?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Paulenrique

It's also right.

This is in the sense that finding the keys is something the speaker is sure will happen, right?

If it was in the sense of movement, it would be:

"Nós estamos indo encontrar essas chaves"?

Or would "para" have to be included somewhere?
