I tell you, it's always like that, always. You can hardly notice them going.
You think you'll be sure to see it next time.. and then the light changes, and they're gone.

Hvorfor er "pludselig", ikke "pludseligt"?

Ja, jeg har det samme spørgsmål.

For me this says the correct answer is: "Suddenly the elephant was away." That just seems wrong. "Suddenly the elephant was gone." seems OK.

Why is this incorrect?: "suddenly was the elephant gone"

Because the word order is wrong. "Pludselig elefanten var væk" would be incorrect in Danish.
