What does “every second house has a car” mean? — Mahdyar’s Blog

If you’ve got confused about it and want to know what does “every second house has a car” mean, you’re welcome!

This post is about all I’ve got on google. I’m not a native English speaker and therefore I, individually, can’t prove it. if you don’t want to read the whole article, go to the last line.

Like my last 200 days, I’ve been studying my German…, but suddenly I noticed a weird sentence. as usual, I googled it, but other than Duolingo ‘s Discussion was nothing, so I decided to write this blog for guys like me who don’t speak English as their native language and got confused.

This is nana talk. A house can have a window/roof and a door, because it is fixed part of it, a so called feature of the house.

A car is not a feature of a house. In our example, the families in every second house own a car(s), that’s what it is.

I wouldn’t talk like that, but you may hear that sentence in spoken German.
