Why not which color?

My question also.

'어떤' 색깔이 파란색입니까?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/wintertriangles

In this case both 무슨 or 어떤 should be fine.

Is '무슨' equivalent to 'what' and '어떤' like 'which'm


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Unicornmon3

Both are acceptable. My main issue is that Duo does not accept 'what' as an adequate answer in this case.

Someone please explain the context this would be used in lol

Could be a question from a colorblind person

(Based on a text I saw of how to explain color to someone colorblind or blind) Blue is a cold color. This color brings you a feeling of cold, an icy bath, stepping on the snow, raindrops on your skin. It's a soothing, relaxing color. This is blue.

I'm having a hard time understanding when the English version "What colour is blue?" could be used... Which makes me question if I'm understanding the Korean version correctly

I was imagining a kindergarten class where a teacher shows children a number of different colored sheets of paper and asks them to identify blue.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AnaBia2103

A colorblind person could ask that


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tina12705

Wouldn't they ask: What kind of color is blue? Or: What is the color blue like?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RWang2017

what is the difference between 무엇 and 무슨?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KanKanMikan

someone answer this question, I want to see a answer


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dullcheeto
