May I know how to use somos if the answer is incorrect in the following sentences?

Nosotros estamos arriba. (We are arrived) . The answer is estamos instead somos. I thought estamos only use in place. Can you please give an example.

Hola Cathy,

I think you misread the English translation for this sentence. The quiz is saying:

Nosotros ___ arriba. (We are upstairs.)

Here we are talking about where we are (place; upstairs = arriba), therefore we need "estamos".

I hope this clarified it.

Saludos

It is somos beacause nosotros somos arriba means we are here like the way you would say We are here in english so It is not a estar instead ser.
