Well, I usually don't ask the pit for help unless I really need it, but whatever this time.

Can someone tell me what this means?

"¿Cuál era el premio que daban los Reyes al primero que viera tierra? ¿Qué regalo daría además de Colón"

I know that the first sentence means something along the lines of "What was the prize that the King/Queen would give to the first person to reach land?", but what about the second question? "What gift (something) besides Columbus?"

Can someone who knows better than me help me out here? Thank you!


EDIT: Sorry! Spelling mistake. It's "además", not "admás".

Isn't babelfish translation any good? I passed level 1 and level 2 french using that.

"Which was the prize that gave the Kings to first that it saw earth? What gift would give in addition to Columbus"

That's what I got. I don't understand. "What gift would they give in addition to Columbus?" Maybe it's not a literal translation here

To the guy that helped - thank you! Check out my edit.

the second sentence is gramaticly incorrect... its missing a word or two...

it translates to (2nd sentence): "what gift would give besides columbus?"...

maybe you forgot to type a word?

What was the prize that the kinds gave to the first one to see land? What gift would be given apart from Columbus?

The second part's gramatically incorrect unless they're saying that they'd give away Columbus. Any help just ask me...spanish is my first language too like the guy above.

Oh, cool lol.

So what does it mean, though? What did they give in addition to Columbus? Is that like what gifts in addition to the original gift did they give to Columbus?


EDIT: ^ Thanks. But that's what I don't get. "What gift would be given apart from Columbus?

mmmmmm...if you think about it... it could mean something like:

what aditional gift did they (the kings) gave to colon?
#13
did you leave a word out or mispelled something? like, "...ademas DEL de Colon?"

Nope. Everything is there. I copied it from the worksheet's questions.

I think I'll just skip that part of the question lol.
#16
What was the prize given to the first to spot land by the kings? What additional gift was given to Columbus by the kings (he was already given one, correct?)?

edit: that's the only thing it could possibly be, given the tense used and the context of the question
#17
Spanish : ¿Qué regalo daría además de Colón

English : What gift would they give beside Colombus?

Weird right?
