Should snámheann muid agus ithimid also count?

You generally wouldn't mix the synthetic form and the analytic forms like that in native speech. They'd use one and stick with it.

The possible answers are not available. The student would have to mix the forms.

If you want us to use the words in the blocks, you must provide the words that you put in the answer.

The variations of the word you provide as "answers" are not what you put as clues. We cannot guess the correct word endings if you do not provide them!

Would "Snámhaimid agus ithimid." also be acceptable or is there a special occasion to use the synthetic form?

Why not "snámhann muid agus itheann muid"?

Thats what I submited and it showed as correct! The lesson did not offer 'snámhaimid agus ithimid' as options at all for selection.

What's the difference between snámhaimid and snámhann muid? Is there a difference in tone?

The difference is purely dialect . An unfair question.
