der/die/das are not just definite articles. When spoken with emphasis, they can be used as demonstrative pronouns. So, "Ist der Käse alt?" translates as "Is the cheese old?", "Is this cheese old?" or "Is that cheese old?". Either translation will be accepted.
I don't know how it was accepted, but I translated der and not only does it mean "the", but it also means "that". P.s. I'm a huge tøp fan as well lol I-/
Old means literally old, is it? The one that has been kept for a long time, is it?
Yup, you are totally right! And I share the same question with you behind this sentence, why old chesse matter? After a short research, I find out the answer: old cheese (or aged cheese) is tasty and nutrient-rich food, and they even found out the oldest cheese on the world (40 year @.@).

Just like in like, but not as in all. In the same articulation place of the T.
I think duolingo mean that how old is the cheese? (for old cheese like old wines) but in this question used alt wrong, because alt is not opposite of young
