"Does this contain sugar?" would be accepted, reported on Nov. 18, 2017.
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?"
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.
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
How about: Is this with sugar?
Perfect sentence for a health-conscious sugarphobic such as myself. haha
"DOES THIS HAVE SUGAR" ridiculous answers once again duolingo, please allow "does this have sugar in it" to be accepted
"Does this one have sugar?" not accepted.
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?"?
