My answer was "An bhfuil tuairiscí sna nuachtáin faoi an agallaimh sin?", it was marked as incorrect because faoi and an combine to form faoin.
However I wonder is it really incorrect; is it a contraction like can't and cannot or must one use faoin?
It is incorrect; it’s not a contraction like “can’t”. It’s closer to a word like “within” in English; although it’s constructed from “with” + “in”, one can’t substitute “with in” for “within”.
Thanks! I just hit (and missed!) this example, and your comparison between faoin and within is very helpful!
Being able to make that distinction in English is tough too :/
One must use faoin (and don/den)
You also used the plural of interview.
As with other lessons, the helpful hints could've been a bit more...helpful...
Anyone know what level of Irish this sentence would equate to from an Irish educational standard?
I thought 'faoi an' is accepted the same as 'faoin' like 'tá mé' is accepted the same as 'táim'
nuachtain was missing from the list of choices
"An bhfuil tuairiscí ann sna nuachtain faoin agallamh sin?" marked incorrect. Was it?
ann is the 3rd person masculine prepositional pronoun for i (ionam, ionat, ann, inti, etc), and sna is i+na, so you have the proposition i in your sentence twice.
