"Kik vannak a régi pályaudvar mögött?"

Translation:Who is behind the old railway station?

July 21, 2016



Kik vannak is plural, so it should be Who are and not Who is.


In theory yes, but in practice, we use "Who is [verb]ing" in English even if the expected answer is two or more people.

Similarly with "What is [verb]ing" even if the expected answer is two or more objects.


The problem is that there is no -ing form. The hungatian sentence means "who are [the people] behind the old railway station?"


We are learning Hungarian not English. Who are/is should both be accepted
