Let's practice here! Try translating this statement: 'I don't have it.'

Hej Adolf,

We would say "Jag har det inte." because this is speaking about something. For example: Jag har inte tidningen. (I don't have the newspaper.) becomes "Jag har den inte." (I don't have it.) and Jag har inte dokumentet. (I don't have the document) becomes "Jag har det inte." :thumbsup:
