"No tengo respuestas."
Translation:I do not have answers.
For my answer "I have no response" it wants me to say "I have no responses". I reported it, but now my brain is hurting from wondering if there's a shade of difference between the two.
My question: Could the Spanish sentence be "No tengo respuesta"? Or "No tengo una respuesta"?
My answer: as I learned, in spanish usually you dont need place any article in construction with negation like "no tener blabla"
"No tengo respuesta" "No tengo una respuesta" In Spanish could be both, Barbara
I so want to put 'the' or 'any' before answers; it just doesn't sound right as it is.
Duolingo would probably accept "any" - I'm pretty sure I've used "any" in this or similar sentences. I'm not sure about "the". I think "no tengo respuestas" (I don't have (any) answers) has a different meaning from "no tengo las respuestas" (I don't have the answers) when talking about some specific answers.
I've been trying to avoid "have got" and "haven't got", but this time it would have been accepted.
Good for you, jmaclb, for trying to avoid "have got" ! Here's a lingot for you :-)
I translated this as I don't have the answers, and Duolingo responded that the correct answer is I don't have any answers. Where is there a word for any in this sentence?
In English, "I don't have answers" and "I don't have any answers" have a very similar meaning that is different from "I don't have the answers". There are some other discussions in this thread about using "the" here. Search for "the answers".
I wrote "I do not have answers." It said I was wrong, that the correct answer was: "I do not have answers." There was no difference. I tried multiple variations (don't instead of do not, responses instead of answers, with and without the period) but all marked wrong.
I do not have any answers I do not have the answers And I do not have answers. was at the top of the discussion. what is the difference
