"The girls have hats."
Translation:Las niñas tienen sombreros.
When should I use tienen and tengo? I first used tengo and duoLingo highlighted it and used tienen.
Tengo is for I (yo tengo), the girls become "they" so you conjugate tener to that person They=tienen
yo tengo, tu' tienes, el/ella/lo/usted tiene, nosotros tenemos, ellos/ellas/ustedes tienen
I, you, he/she/it/you(formal), we, they/you (you all formal)
where does "gorros" come from and why is "sombreros" wrong? Because I was marked wrong and gorros was given as the correct answer, yet even here sombreros is correct - I am very confused!
Sombreros is correct, but as I have discovered, if there was some other type of error in your sentence, such as word order, DL sometimes offers a different option, which can be confusing!
