A/en la pelota ... can both be used? Does a la imply that it is a certain ball game they are playing?

Hola Emanuel

When we say something like this:

¡No juegues a la pelota en el patio!

Don't play with the ball in the patio!

we are not referring to a specific game; we are referring to simply playing "with" the ball (just using a ball).

We could have also said:

No juegues con la pelota en el patio.

Hola William

You are right. It could be any of the answers you are proposing. We forgot to say in the hint "Conjugate the nosotros form...". It's been corrected.

Thanks for reporting it.
