La carretera es muy peligroso. This is what the translation site gives me for the road is very dangerous (I was wondering whether to use es or esta.) I have checked that peligroso is an adjective so can be o/a. Can anyone explain please why masculine o is being used for a feminine noun? All 3 translationn sites say the same so is this a general mistake or what. Thanks

Use "es" for the verb.

The translator, I guess, is not accurate all the time. smile "Peligrosa" is describing the road ("la carretera"), therefore, since the la carretera is feminine, the preligrosa should be feminine too.

Thank you, I thought so to, I just neede someone to confirm it for me. The translator just recently has come up with some strange things but when all 3 say the same you start to question yourself! - caza, ENE 11, 2010
