History or no, shouldn't the English translation dispense with "and"? That's what I would understand from elementary school, and Google Translate doesn't include said word in the rendering. Perhaps I shouldn't be so persnickety, in any case, but I do find dear Duo teaching me my own native English in some of the answers it gives for the exercises. En garde, owl!
