I'm unsure whether this question
should be closed as duplicate of this one:
While the structure the question is about is the same for both, and the answers are very similar (actually Emanuels answer is a lot more complete than mine on the newer question), the answers are not really generic and only use the examples from the question.
Clearly, both OPs are/were only just starting to learn German and might still have some difficulties if the answers only used examples with completely different words.
So what is the way to go here:
- leave both open
- close as duplicate, no further action required
- close as duplicate and add a generic answer
- close as duplicate, edit the older question to be more generic and add a generic answer
- ask the underlying question as a new question and provide a general answer.
- something else?
