'Mom's there, where's dad?' was incorrect, but 'Mom is there, where's dad?' was the suggested correct answer.
Apostrophe needs to be allowed on neither, either or both.
Yikes this post is two years ago, still not fixed...
My suggested correct answer was "Mom is there where da is."
"Mom is there where da is" is accepted since at least 9 months ago, so should've been accepted at the moment you posted this... Maybe there was some other problem?
so weird. my suggested answer was "Mom where is dad is"
Hmm, that can't be.
It's "Mom is (there) where dad is". The first "is" is not skippable and there is no "is" after "where" (I checked it just now).
None of these are correct. The second part is not a question, it's a clause.
My parents speak Ukrainian sometimes and it feels weird to kind of understand a language I never thought I would understand
what is the rule about the coma? Why is there a coma here?
In this case it is a complex sentence with the attributive clause of place. According to the punctuation rules there should be a comma. Я там, де ти був вчора (I am where you were yesterday). I sometimes put it even in English sentences by accident.
"Mom is there, where is dad(?)" It's missing 'there' in the word bank, keyboard option was wrong too.
The second part is not a question, it's a clause.
It should be "Mom is where dad is" or "Mom is there where dad is"
