In this question, the sentences are, "I have only two horses. He has twelve." My question concerns the second sentence. The sentence reads, "Il a douze," and is translated as "He has to horses." Wouldn't an "en" be necessary, "he has two of them," referring back to the previous sentence?
Are you referring to this sentence?
Tu as un cheval ? - Non, j'ai deux chevaux.
If so, then the second sentence doesn't need en because it repeats the object (chevaux). However, you could say J'en ai deux. In this case, en refers back to cheval in the first sentence.
