In my workbook, the given answer states:
Etwa acht Liter Speiseeis schleckt jeder Deutsche im Jahr.
I thought this would depend on knowing if you were talking about a male german or a female german. Why is it not therefore "jede Deutsche"? This can only be for the singular because of "schleckt" but then does the default fall on a male "Deutsche"?
Is the word "Deutsche" hence under the same rules as "der Fünfte/der Vierte"?
