I was starting module 6 and took a break to go back through all the previous modules again to learn the new content that was added. I realized that I'm not quite understanding something. Could someone please enlighten me on the use of を in the example below?
In module 2.8, I translated “I put the book in my bag” as follows:
私は本 が かばん に いれます / (Watashi wa) hon ga kaban ni iremasu
The correct answer was:
本を鞄に入れます / Hon o kaban ni iremasu
I'm not clear on the use of を in that sentence. Lesson 2.6 gives a very basic usage of を with a verb, and I'm used to に or で replacing を when necessary. Could someone help me understand how exactly it's being used here?
Also, is my translation correct and just another way of expressing the sentence?
