Remember mini lesson 1? The same principle is applied here: change the suffixes depending on the thing being described. (This is kind of a difficult concept minna-san, so please do your best and ASK QUESTIONS if you need help!)

Note: There are other counters in which the entire words are changed like:

General things: add the suffic '-tsu'

@FaLux: 'no' isn't used here. but i need another opinion though. As my knowledge bank tells me, number then noun.

and about days and duration, we'll get on that on the next mini lesson, combined with time. thanks for the suggestion.

does the order/ordering applies to placing, like in a competition or something?
'watashi wa ichi-ban desu' like i'm first? desho?

or is there other set of counters for placing?

ichi-ban, ni-ban, san-ban , etc. are also used for ranking :) *looks up* it's not there? I forgot about the suffix -ban XD gomen ne! *bows*

Numbers 6, 7, and 10 needs no use of 'no'. All of them are correct. Good job!

akamichi-san, it's 'hyaku' not 'hyakku'. Please don't forget next time, ok?

3. nihyakuyonjyuusan-bon boorupen

7. hyaku kyuujyuu nanasatsu hon

Good Job!

Ah, this thread must've been missed. We had a glitch awhile ago that truncated a lot of the long thread posts. Let me see if I can get Sheqel to restore this thread. Sorry about that smnb!
