Why was "befragen" incorrect - it was suggested.
It's a verb.
But "questions" is not a verb in that context.
Right. That's why "befragen" is wrong.
But "befragen" is offered as a translation for that word.
Well, that's how dictionaries work. Not all translations of a word are correct in every context.
