"Does this contain sugar?" would be accepted, reported on Nov. 18, 2017.
It's more accurate and common in English to say:" Does this have sugar in it?"
It's better than "does this have sugar" and means the same in the Chinese sentence.
I personally believe that if you put "...sugar in it" then it should be accepted.
Hi, I'm new to Duolingo, and I have a question: Why does "Does this contain sugar?" not work for this question?
probably because we need to write in English alternatives for what was meant to be said in Chinese ... very few people use the word "contain" in their day-to-day chit-chat while drinking tea ... so it wasn't programmed in probably ...
How would you say "Is this sweet?"
How about: Is this with sugar?
Perfect sentence for a health-conscious sugarphobic such as myself. haha
Out of curiosity, could you use this phrase to ask "is this sweet?"? I vaguely recall 糖 also meaning sweet, but I could be wrong since it's been more than ten years since I studied Chinese in school
"DOES THIS HAVE SUGAR" ridiculous answers once again duolingo, please allow "does this have sugar in it" to be accepted
Has this got sugar should be accepted
Why is "Does this have any sugar?" rejected, especially as the dictionary pop-up suggests 'have any'?
Totally correct. However, sometimes Duolingo is a bit pedantic and doesn't allow variations such as this unfortunately.
"Does this one have sugar?" not accepted.
Where is the " bag"?
Anyone able to explain why the counting word 个 is used without a noun? I've seen other sentences with 《这是。。。》so this is a little confusing. 谢谢。
"Does this have any sugar" is also considered incorrect
What is correct answer??
Why not "Is this candy?"
Lots of things may or may not have sugar in them without being candy.
Why not "Will this kill me with sweetness?"?
