Translation:How many sons do you have?
How many sons so you have? Should be accepted, it's OK to be used in the exercise to show plural, but in the answer shouldn't be needed.
I believe you are saying "you" should be accepted as plural for "你们". If so, "you" is an accepted answer by Duolingo.
In English you wouldn't say how many sons do you both have? We would just say how many sons do you have? - you becomes plural because you would be addressing both as implied here
I think because it specifically asking for sons not children (nor daughters) in this question.
also you've given me the correction "You guys have how many sons?" which isn't grammatically correct in English.
I have a lot of trouble making those symbols correspond to the sounds of the speech. For instance, the "gè" seems absent.
The recording for this sentence says 个 strangely fast, but it is there. Listen to the end of the 几 sound.
I'm disappointed that it's not allowed to leave out "both" in the translation because there is no actual reference to 'both' such as 'dou'.
How many children do you have? should be accept too.The question didn't mentioned that only sons is mentioned,It could also mentioned brothers,sisters or daughters.
I find the english translation including the word "guys" to be awkward since it "guys' generally refers to males, so to me it's kinda like asking two men how now many sons do you have. I think most people are forgetting that the word "you" is also the proper word for "you" and for 你们. My two cents worth.
do you guys have any sons should be accepted as you ask for people to write "guys" in your previous rounds, seems like each section there are new rules for what the translations should be in English :)
Your problem is that you're asking "do you have sons" while the sentence is asking "HOW MANY sons do you have"
how much sons do you have should be accepted it says that it should be accepted
No; in English "how many" is used for countable things that can be identified with a number only (I have one son, I have two sons) and "how much" is used for uncountable things that require a measure word ("How much rice do you have?" "I have a cup of rice." / "How much medicine did you take?" "I took a teaspoonful of medicine.")
