‘Leider?’ Warum? Hast du __________ (them) nicht gern? Torsten: Nein, ich mag __________ (them) nicht besonders. So I filled in "Euch" for both of the blanks above and apparently they were wrong. The correct answers are "sie" and "sie". Can somebody explain to me how that is right, especially with the second one? I see a subject, verb and a direct object (euch) in the sentence. Same goes for the first one aswell. Either the supposed correct answers are wrong or I'm missing something. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for the timely replies. lol Kyle

I think the answer is "sie" rather than "euch" because if you don't like the people involved, you would probably not refer to them with the informal plural..."euch" is for family and close friends.

Thanks for the quick reply, Shannon That totally makes sense. I should have thought that through. I forgot about the Acc. sie for they/them.

Am I missing something here (I probably am)? Isn't "euch" the accusitive case of the informal, plural "you" and not "they"?

Bob D, you're right. Don't let me confuse you with what you already know. Still trying to keep all this stuff straight in my head and occasionally have relapses. lol

‘Leider?’ Warum? Hast du sie (them)nicht gern? Torsten: Nein, ich mag sie (them) nicht besonders. "Ich mag euch nicht" is "I don't like you" You are right. "Euch" is the informal, plural form of "you"

Can someone please direct me to the lesson for Personal pronouns in Akkusative? I need to understand them and apply them. I'm having difficulty with mir/ mich, etc. I've not been able to find the lesson that covers these. Thanks so much
