why do i hear a strange sound when she says "chléb"?

The TTS is not perfect. It is a computer, not a human.

Czechs usually ask question in negative form. For this reason, I think one of the acceptable answers shall be: "Do you eat bread?"


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

No, that is not true. Czechs use negative questions when offering something politely, but that is not happening here.

OK. Then one more question: Is "Don't you eat bread?" another answer or isn't it accepted? If not, why?

"Don't you eat bread?" is accepted.

The intonation of the sound is affirmative while there is a question mark in the answer
