I'm having some difficulty with Chapter 17, the P&R. Any aid would bemost appreciated - see below.
Hi, this is my first semester in Latin and I usually use your answers to check myself. On the P&R for Chp. 17, I have a question about the relative clause in no. 1 "quae nos semper alunt." Your key has the translation "which always nourishes us," but isn't the verb in the relative clause in the 3rd person plural? If so, and I could be mistaken, shouldn't it read something like "which we always nourish."
I have a question as well about no. 6 "Centum ex viris mortem diu timebant et nihil clementiae exspectabant." The key has "A hundred of the men feared death for a long time and expected no mercy." I'm confused about how centum ex viris translates to a hundred of the men, because I thought that ex took the ablative, but when I translate the sentence I get "A hundred men were afraid of death from men for a long time and were expecting nothing of mercy." And that just sounds a little silly. Can you help?
