I continue to take tests on this lesson but am not given credit for correct answers up to 100%. Please assist me. Thank you.
When we write objects after the verb, do we always write them in the order Direct Object followed by Indirect Object, like this?
(Les) cantaron una canción a Pedro y Pablo por su despedida.
Or can we change the order like this:
(Les) cantaron a Pedro y Pablo una canción por su despedida.
PS How can I find my answered questions? I don't seem to be getting notifications.
Why is the accent on "cuando" in this answer? It doesn't appear to be a question. Is it considered an indirect sentence because the narrator is quoting the screen?
La pantalla no dice ________ aterriza el avión.The screen doesn't say when the plane is landing.
EDIT January 12: I see that there is a lesson in B1 about use of the accent. However, I'm still in A2, so maybe there could be a link to that lesson where I was in A2? It only said when to use the accent, not when not to. Thanks.
I am confused after getting an answer wrong in a test and then reviewing the subsequent lesson.
In a recent test, this sentence was given to complete. "No me gusto nada hacer ejercicio _____________." My answer was "después de comer," when in fact the answer was "después de comiendo."
I went back to review the lesson and the lesson states that after the preposition "de" comes the infinitive form of the verb to say the "ing" form of the verb. Now I am confused as to why my answer of "después de comer" is not correct. When do you use the infinitive? and when do you use the present participle (i.e. ending "ando" or "iendo") after the preposition de?

¿Dónde usted vive?
¿Dónde vives tú?
¿Dónde tú vives?
