They are not taken off for ever. You just have to do it again properly.
I think you don't realise that to let you get away with mistakes, they have to manually add those individual mistakes as valid options. You're demanding quite a lot of work. If you are saying you should be able to make any mistake in English, then that means the abolition of German-to-English translation exercises, because no response would ever be considered a bad translation.
"This" and "that" are usually used as a "distance" indicator in some languages (e.g. French and English). If you refer to something close in time or in space, you usually use "this". It doesn't really make a big difference semantically, if the context is clear enough.
Seems like they don't have this distinction in German.
Because clothes in english can be a plural, "that is your clothes" means "that collection of objects is your clothes", "they are your clothes" means "that object and that object and that object are your clothes".
You might tend towards using the latter when someone's clothes are spread around a room, and the former when they are in a neat pile, but when someone is wearing them you could use either.
Tip- Think of Das as being This and That when its a singular object. Then think of Das as being These or Those for objects consisting of more than one thing. Example This is my shirt and That is my shirt= Das ist mein Hemd ........AND for These are my shirts and Those are my shirts=Das sind meine Hemden. I hope that helps you with the way you perceive the tricky Das.
As for English, situation or context do not seem to require singular or plural.
I think clothing has a more form those / these are your clothes.
that /this is your clothing.
As for description of a place that sells clothes, I grew up hearing clothing store.
But Kleidung means dress, clothes and clothing so I guess the confusion is when we should use Dein or Deine. I don't get the difference between them.
Clothing is more formal than close and is used especially to me in a particular type of clothes. There is no singular form of clothes or clothing. A piece, an item, an article of clothing is used to talk about one thing that you wear such as a dress or shirt. This is simply cutting the ham too thin
different forms of inflection. "dein" is nominative masculinum singular as well as nominative or accusative neuter singular, "deine" is nominative and accusative feminine singular as well as nominative and accusative plural.
