I'm not a native English speaker, so I may be wrong, but to me it seems like this sentence doesn't make any sense...? shouldn't it be something like "the question does not appear frequently" or something like that?

The English sentences we use are really just provided by Duolingo and can be found in every language course. We cannot change them. I agree that the sentence you propose may be better, but there tends to be a reason why Duolingo structures its sentences in a certain way, with a specific content. One may assume that it follows a statistically sound formula for teaching one the language most efficiently. :)

So, even though I agree with your observation, as long as there are no serious issues with comprehending the sentence and its content, I don't see a reason to remove this sentence from the course altogether. :)
