"Spiser han frukten?"
Translation:Is he eating the fruit?
Why isn't "he is eating the fruit" the answer? Would "he is" be in a different order?
Because in the sentence, we're asking a question about him eating the fruit rather than making a statement.
Also, sentences that start with verbs such as spiser or snakker are questions. Most, if not all of the time.
Is the fruit plural here? Could this sentence be about one piece of fruit (an apple or a banana) or an indefinite amount, such as a fruit salad: "Is he eating the (salad/assortment of) fruit?"
