"Do they see it?"
Translation:Sehen sie es?
Whenever you ask questions in German you put the verb before the subject.
Should it not be Sehen Sie es? Doesn't "Sehen sie es?" translate to "Does she see it?"
I believe "Does she see it" is "Sieht sie es?", is the conjugation of the verb Sehen that makes it they or she.
"Sehen Sie es?" means "Do you see it?" The word Sie capitalized is the formal form of "du".
"sie" can either be feminine singular third person (she) or plural third person (they). Context, as well as other clues such as conjugation, helps you determine which it is.
Doesn't the Sie in "Sehen sie es" need to be capatolized to mean 'Them/They'? While the lower cased version means she?
Capitalized Sie is only used for formal second person. Lowercase sie can either be singular feminine ("she") or plural ("they").
I typed "Schauen sie es?", and it is incorrect. Can someone explain please?
So, to clarify, does my answer "Sehen Ihn sie?" mean "Do you(pl) see it(her)? Or am I all wrong?
They asked "why not?" It's because when the verb is put into the first position to create a question, the subject must follow the verb. So the sentence parses with es as the subject and sie as the object.
