why is the answer "what a strange man" not acceptable? when you hover over "quel" "what a" is a translation.

I would hazard a guess and say it is because of the question mark. If it was an exclamation point or a period, your translation would be right. Same for the English version. "What a strange man?" doesn't work (as opposed to "What, a strange man?" or "What? A strange man?")

I think you're right. That's why I skipped the punctuation. Maybe that's why it made it through...

That's weird... I just said that and it was accepted. Maybe it was changed since you posted.
