Technically, 你最喜欢做什么运动 is "what sport do you like TO PLAY the most," which is actually different.
The English doesn't say anything about playing sports. Or watching either.
What sports do you like and what sports do you like playing are two separate questions.
Why can't I add ma at the end,
Ma is only used when it's a yes/no question
什么 implies a question so there's no need for a second question marker.
The 'what' 什么 makes it a question
ma is for yes/no questions
Because (1) you already have 什么 as a question word in the sentence, and because (2) 吗 is only for questions that can be answered with 'yes' or 'no', which is not the case here.
Ma, is for simple yes/no questions.
吗 is used to indicate a yes/no question formed from a statement, sort of like adding Do...? To a statement in English. E.g. You like cake. = 你喜欢蛋糕. Do you like cake? = 你喜欢蛋糕吗。
Also, I believe that the "ma" provided in the word list is not the "ma" the indicates a question. The "ma" provided is the word for horse, I think.
Shen me already makes the sentence a question, so ma is unnecessary.
When the sentence has a question word in it, you don't add ma at the end.
什么 (shénme, what/which) is the question particle, so there shouldn't also be 吗
Because it requires an answer with "yes" or "no". In this case, the answer is a name of a sport.
Because ma refers to a yes or no question as far as I know.
Because you have 什么 in it already
Because this is not a "yes-no" question.
Thw use of " She ma" Indicates that the sentence is a question, so ma isnt necessary.
Seems to me that "what's your favorite sport" would fit better, but maybe that's just me.
This question wrong for two reasons see all above
Yes, the English to the Chinese translation is often times misleading. I left out 'zuo' and it was marked wrong. However, the English says, watch, do, bet on, etc.. Thus, how is one to determine the Exact meaning? DL take note!
Both answers are now accepted. With 做 and without.
Not today 19-07-19.
Today (2019 07 31) it was accepted without 做
According to my 老师 both are fine. Hope that Duolingo continues to improve translations
What sport do you like to DO the most?
欢 was missing from the word tiles when I did this lesson, but I was able to pass with 你最喜做什么运动
你的最喜欢运动是什么？ can someone tell me what is wrong with this sentence?
你最喜欢的运动是什么. Oh. this one was accepted.
I wrote EXACTLY the same as above mentioned. And 3 times on a row
it is marked as wrong. What to do?
It is outstanding miserable from Duolingo to show also the character for "ma".
This sentence is complete nonsense. I hate this very much.
