“你看见我的行李了吗?” should also be correct.

Any reason my answer 你看见了我的行李 was accepted? I am missing the question word. Is it optional?

A bug, I guess...

No, it is not optional. Without it you're stating: "You say/have seen my luggage"

Anyone know why 看 can't be used without 见 here?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PierreDufour2

I think 看=watch, 看见= see

Excuse me but, 了吗 is also correct

看见 should be okay instead of 看见了 shouldn't it?

Without 了, it sounds like it's in the present ("Do you see... ?"). 了 makes it a completed action ("Did you see...?). The use of the English Present Perfect could be translated 看过 but that refers to experience ("Have you ever seen...?). The English Present Prefect is hard to translate into Chinese with sufficient context.

I think I saw it without 了 in a different excercise. But I only remember: 我看见了你的孩子。

Frank speaking,了吗 is more commonly used at sentence end.

I've asked this before: If the word choice include ”你” & “你们“,why aren't either a proper choice since there isn't a differentiation in English?
