Thanks so, so much for your quick response!

    Plena is actually feminine singular and agrees in gender, number, and case with navis. Frumenti and vini are genitive singular because they are objects of the adjective plenus -a -um. Does that help?

    In Question 3: The huge ship will be full of grain and wine

    They answer is : Navis ingens erit frumenti et vini plena

    Frumenti and vini are both genitive singulars of neuter words. I'm having trouble understanding why plena appears to be in the neuter plural.

    ​​​​​​thanks!
