Exercise 611

Post by Gillian » Thu Dec 21, 2006 12:05 pm

I am having problems with q4. The best I can come up with is
. For if once we keep two marches which (are) of three days away, the enemy will no longer follow us
I know this isn't right because "road/journey" is singular
The solution can't be "a journey of two or three days" because it doesn't say " of two"
Where does the two fit in?

δ?ο is often indeclinable when used with plural nouns, so I would take it here as going with τ?εῖς to give you "of two or three days." If I remember correctly, δυοῖν usually occurs only with dual nouns.
