"Who is she?"
Literal translations help me; "Speaking of her, who is?" 彼女 (かのじょ) - she, は - subject particle, だれ - who, です - to be/is, か - question marker.
You have to add a Japanese keyboard layout / input method editor on your computer. This probably doesn't take more than a few mouse clicks. For instance, on Windows you'd probably click where it says "ENG" in the bottom right corner; then "Language preferences"; then "Add a language".
彼女（かのじょ）isn't necessary if its obvious who you are talking about, regardless of gender. Duo shouldn't accept that since you're leaving out a significant portion of the question (assuming this was a standalone question).
Whenever this question is used, it has to be clear by some means who is being referred to, and "she" doesn't really pin that down either, in general. So it seems perfectly reasonable for Duolingo not to require an indication of gender that's not, in general, necessary in Japanese.
Similarly, I'm sure the Spanish course would accept "¿Quién es?" for "Who is she?"
Gender need not be specified in English either. "Who is that?" for example.
I dont really understand because is the previous questions the answer did not look like that it looked like this- 彼女は誰ですか. I am really confused
I know it's wrong, but can someone explain why the following is incorrect:
は marks the topic かのじょ, thus it has to come right after the word it is attached to. when using a question word (だれ here), its positioning depends on where the response word would go in a statement sentence, it would go right before です.
Your sentence essentially translates to "Who is her?", which is grammatically incorrect. In English, we commonly switch the word order of subjects and objects when using a question word like "who", but even though we say "Who" first, "She" is the subject still (it would turn into "her" if it was the object). Since かのじょ is then the subject, it needs to get the は, and the object, だれ, needs to preceed ですか.
When I tried to answer with 「彼女が誰ですか」it provided the following answer: 「彼女、誰ですか？」 This seems wrong? Also we've been taught never to use a question mark after a か particle?
ga marks the subject wa marks the topic in this case the topic is about who she is that's why wa is used I don't know if explained it clearly sorry
I think Duo should include Kanji Stroke Order Drills too, or at least on smartphones / touch devices.
They may add it, but their Japanese course is still in beta. In the meantime, you can download the Kanji Study app or Kanji Tree.
I answered exactly as it is up there, and it marked it wrong because the answer was in Kanji
