That cute little guy can stand wherever he wants.

What does på mean? Is it "in" or "on"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MirindaWer

On. "In" would be "i". It's just that in Norwegian some fixed expressions are different, as they would say "I'm on the shop" - "på butikken"

I would argue that "cat's" and "cat is" is the same thing.

When spoken in the US we often condense the sounds down in order to talk faster so that it would sound like, "the cat's on the table." However, we wouldn't use that when writing. It's always "cat is".
