Deep pink is not the correct translation according to English grammar, it should be dark pink.

Deep pink is correct and is one of many shades of pink.

In English we would say 'is this deep pink?' not 'this is deep pink?'

To explain the sentence it is necessary to understand that "Dark Pink " is the name of Barbie's evil twin. The twin is not seen very much due to a large custodial sentence.

How would one say, "Is this deep pink?" as opposed to "This is deep pink?"

Additionally, what is the difference between không and ư?

I would translate "Is this deep pink?" as "Đây là màu hồng đậm, phải không?" and I would translate "This is deep pink?" as "Đây là màu hồng đậm?". In Vietnamese, I tend to use the former structure. Like any other language, Vietnamese does have an inflection at the end of the sentence to denote a question. It's extremely subtle. Anyway, there are many ways to translate this question, but I just thought I'd give you my personal preference.

By adding a "question word" or "sound" at the end of the question, there is no difference between "không" and "ư". It's all preference. I personally use "không", "phải không" and "hả". I hope that helps!
