frankrike ar det enda land jag inte har varit iQ. Varfor gar det "det enda land" har?A. It usually works like that before a relative clause. There's an implied "som" after it, but it is often dropped. Jag har inte varit i Frankrike is the correct word order when the clause is the sentence's main clause. But in a dependent clause, adverbs come before the verb, and hence it's Frankrike ar det enda land jag inte har varit i.

den har bilden ser annorlunda ut Note: olika is unalike, as in "These two images are unalike"; annorlunda is the version you use if you're not comparing something: just "different"?

In sentences like Hon ater upp applet 'She eats (all of) the apple'. we want the object to go after the particle (you can't put the particle last).
Excuse me, this maybe a stupid question, but I still can't understand when it is "… ser ut x" or "… ser x ut"… ser ut som [noun] = looks like [noun]ser [adjective] ut = looks [adjective]ser ut att [verb] = varies in English, but e.g. looks to be [continuous verb]ser ut att vara [adjective] = seems to be [adjective](basically speaking, at least.)

jag kunde inte sager nej till det erbjudandet i could not say no to that offer
ett erbjudande du inte kan avboja Note: The word order here has got to be: "… du inte kan". Even though it's just a sentence fragment, we can tell it's a subclause here so that inte has to go before the verb. It sounds really wrong the other way… an offer you cannot refuse …Du kan inte avboja det har erbjudandet is a main clause. We can be sure it isn't a main clause because the verb isn't in second place. 'Det har erbjudandet kan du inte avboja' is too, both those are grammatically correct.

mannen har ett ryskt pass the man has a russian passport
han ar larare i ryskaQ. "Han ar larare pa ryska" was my answer here, marked wrong. What is the difference between that formulation and "Han ar larare i rysk"? A. pa ryska is only used for 'in Russian' as in 'He said it in Russian' he is a teacher of russian … – Han sa det pa ryska. If you want to speak about teaching a subject, we always use i: Hon ar larare i geografi/historia/tyska … 'She is a teacher of (or 'teaches') geography/history/German' …
"Han ar en Rysk larare", betyder den har lararen ar rysk. "he is a russian teacher", means this teacher is russian.

You just have to guess from context if a Swedish verb in the present tense refers to the present or the future.

om hag hade tillrakligt med pengar sa skulle jag kopa varldens alla rosor och ge till dig. tillrackligt doesn't work on its own. In Eng, enough works wo a prep, but for instance – you can't say if I had a lot money. Same with tillrackligt. if i had enough money i would buy all the world's roses and give them to you. In Swedish, both varldens alla rosor and alla varldens rosor are possible.You can add dem if you want to, but it isn't necessary. Eng needs them here for some reason.
The first part of the sentence is a subordinate clause. The V2 rule only applies to main clauses. If you look at the whole sentence, the structure is like this: [subordinate clause expression condition] skulle jag kopa … where the verb is in second place, it's just that the first place is very long.In subordinate clauses, the rule is that the subject goes before the verb. (and if there's an inte in it, it too has to go before the verb).
I think sa's function is similar to "then", which explains the conclusion of an "if" (om) sentence if the "if" clause is mentioned first. "IF this THEN that." "OM det har SA det dar.""IF I had enough money THEN I would buy…"
ett misslyckande racker! one failure is enough!

det ar viktigt med effektivitet, eller effektivitet ar viktigt. Note: I want to tell you that something is X, and that thing is Y. In English, … efficiency is important. …you often do this by saying things like 'It's important to have/be …', so the same phenomenon occurs for you too.
Effektivitet ar viktigt works the same way as Det ar viktigt med … – you get a general statement, so it turns into the neuter form. In the definite, we'd always stick to common gender for common gender words: Effektiviteten ar viktig – here we're talking about some specific efficiency. You can be sure it's a general statement if you have a singular noun with no article and no other modifier.
If you have some modifier that anchors it, it will be gendered again: Projektets effektivitet ar viktig. Any undefined singular noun will be interpreted as a general statement.
Is effektivitet an ett word? No, it's an en word. Effektivitet ar viktigt. is a construction used to say that efficiency is important in general.

den nya lararen kritiseras av manga foraldrar the new teacher is being criticized by many parents
var ar boken trykt? Q. Initially I translated this sentence as Var ar boken tryckd because bok is an en-word. Though it seems you'd say tryckt here. Isn't tryckt a type of adjective in this sentence? where is the book printed? A. It sure is (edit: at least I think so :)), but we don't like putting a d after a k, so it turns into a t instead. Hence the form is tryckt for both genders, and tryckta in plural.

You could also have said ungefar nu – 'approximately now'.

han sa att han inte kunde komma forran i overmorgon. Q. why is 'inte' before 'kunde' and not the other way around? A.. In subordinate clauses, the adverb has to come before the verb. This is a rule called the BIFF rule… …Main clause: ”Han sa”Subordinator: ”att” (introduces a subordinate clause)Subordinate clause: he said that he could not come until the day after tomorrow If it had been a main clause it would have been ”han kunde inte komma” as you say.
Q. BIFF? A. It’s short for ”i bisats kommer inte fore det finita verbet” (In a subordinate clause, inte (or any adverb) comes before the finite verb.)… A… It applies to more "grammatical" adverbs, but it does not apply to adverbs that are more "descriptive". The line isn't always clearcut. But it doesn't apply to time adverbials (like nasta vecka 'next week') for instance…
