"Are they large?"
Obvious from the context, also apparently unneeded for clarification or emphasis. Another way to look at it is that the sentence 'inherits' the meaning by its own current structure.
Kindly know that I am making a suggestion based on the grammar I have learned so far, but that I am still a just a beginner.
I've only completed People and I got this wrong for not including Je. I haven't learned Je yet.
Is "Wao ni wakubwa?" also able to be used? Or does "wanene" Specifically mean large?
In English "they" could be anything. Animate or inanimate. It could be books, people, cars, or anything. If that is the case, then wanene is not correct for books or other things. Who goes around asking if people are large? Sorry.
duolingo sometimes gives us odd sentences, I figured it probably wasn't about people so was just checking. Also is wanene specifically something that is large? does wakubwa refer to people only? I'm English and only just started so not 100% on things yet.
Following is how the question looks in my test. I selected #2. Why is this not correct?
Mark the correct meaning Are they large?<pre>
1 Wao rehema wanene? 2 Wao ni makubwa? 3 Ni wanene?</pre>
It is how we are supposed to start questions in Swahili. It is like a question mark at the beginning of the sentence. (Does that make sense?) It is like saying "this is a question".
