differente?
TuringTest
Best Response
You've already chosen the best response.
0
yes, but here it is plural, so "differentes"
I assume you know the word for "food" so you should now be able to translate
" I eat different kinds of food"

TuringTest
Best Response

what happened to "kinds of" ?
I told you how to tranlate that
also you don't need "la" because it is not singular
maybe it is easier to translate
"I eat different foods"
iheartfood
Best Response
You've already chosen the best response.
0
oh okay so is it this?
yo como diferentes clases de comida.
???
TuringTest
Best Response
You've already chosen the best response.
0
that is tolerable, I think
yo como clases/tipos de comidas diferentes (remember diferentes is an adjective, which usually goes after the noun in spanish)
iheartfood
Best Response
You've already chosen the best response.

Yo como clases de comidas diferentes.
???

Well this is where it is hard for me to say, because I live in Mexico so I use their form of speech, but in class they probably want a more international version.
I think both are equally acceptable, but I suppose that
yo como diferentes clases de comida/alimentos.
is safer
