Hello!

Can you help me, please?

What is the translation of this sentence?

      Expresar EL PROPÓSITO POR EL QUE la gente va a distintos lugares de una ciudad.
     
      To express EL PROPÓSITO POR EL QUE people go to different places in a city.
 
For example:
 
      I go to the supermarket to buy food and drinks.
 
Thank you!

"Say(Explain) the reason why people would go to/visit different places in a city."

I ´m assuming it ´s for an exercise in class... Smile

It ´s obviously a mistranslation from English grammar, wanting to enhance clauses of purpose ( ´propósito ´, although we ´d call them ´final ´). The normal translation would be why they go to..., as said above, obviously.
