    Correct please

    The attack suits the soldier better than defense.

    Атака подходит солдата, чем оборону.

    suits - imperfective
    soldier - direct object, masculine accusative
    defense - direct object, feminine accusative?

    Спасибо!

    Or either that 'defense' is an indirect object. Hence, dative. I am confused.
    Russian should be the universal language. Seriously.

    1.

    You should pay attention to the English grammar.

    "The attack suits the soldier better than defense."

    Here's how it works:

    "(The attack suits the soldier) better than (defense does)."

    The defense is the subject of the second clause. We compare the subjects of 2 clauses here, not the objects.

    So атака and защита both should be in nominative in Russian translation.


    2.

    Подходить requires dative or для + genitive in Russian.

    3.

    You missed "better" in the translation.

    Result:

    Атака подходит солдату лучше, чем оборона.

    Анися вводт подноса заполнялся с домашными Русскыми фирменноями.

    tray - accusative masculine
    homemade Russian -instrumental plural adjectives
    specialties - plural instrumental

    Спасибо!
