    Help--Henle Exercise 130, Number 4

    Here is the question for translation: Who is seizing foreign harbors and cities?

    The correct answer is "Quis portus et urbes alienas occupat?"

    I answered "alienos," thinking that "foreign" modified "harbors" (masculine), rather than "cities" (feminine).

    Is there a rule as to which noun should be modified?

    Thanks,
    Barbara

    Barbara,

    I'll do to you what I do with my students: answer a question with a question (they learn the answer better this way). What does Rule 478 in the grammar book say?

    Let me know if that helps.

    Thanks.

    Martin

      Thank you!

      Thank you for taking the time to directi me to rule 478. Next time I'll consult the grammar book first, which I now see, has an index!
