Strong substances as in diamonds or heroin?
I would guess more like heroin. Strong in the sense of "hard" like a diamond would probably be "dura"... but like English, I'm guessing both could be correct, depending on context.
Also did not accept: The substances are very strong.
That would have been, "Las substancias son muy fuerte."
When "son" is at the beginning of a sentence it translates to "They are."
Yeah, I realized that after I thought about it. Thanks for comment. Gracias.
Thanks for the explanation.
In new-speak 'substances' tend to mean drugs...
Oh how the español word order can trick my anglophonic brain at times.....
"They are very powerful substances" was not accepted.
I still can't understand in which cases the adjective goes before the noun and when it goes after the noun
Are "sustancias" and "substancias" correct?
Could you say, "son muy fuertes sustancias"?
