Is einen Elefant also good?

Correct translations: Sie hat einen Elefanten. Sie hat einen Elefant. You missed 1 correct translation!


Yeah, I'm not understanding why "Sie hat einen Elefant" is a correct translation. I thought "der Elefant" was only to be used in the nominative case, as shown in the below link. All other cases become "Elefanten." http://www.canoo.net/inflection/elefant:N:M

    Perhaps they're being lenient because many native speakers drop the ending, even though it's incorrect.
