Translate the quoted English words into the correct answer.

"The good farmers" work in the fields

Possible Answers:

Agricola bonus

Agricoli boni

Agricolae bonae

Agricolae boni

Agricola bona

Correct answer:

Agricolae boni


Agricola is one of the few nouns in the first declension that is masculine and not feminine. The adjective then must be in the masculine gender to agree with agricola. The correct nominative plural of agricola is agricolae, and the correct nominative plural masculine adjective is boni; agricolae boni
