"What does this storekeeper sell?"

Translation:Que vend ce commerçant ?

April 12, 2018



I didn't think we could reverse verb vend with "ce commerçant", only with a pronoun.

Qu'est-ce que ce commerçant vend?

seems like the more natural French way.

yeah, I tried the same translation as you did and got it marked as wrong, don't understand why

April 13, 2018


And I wrote "qu'est ce que vend ce commeçant was was marked incorrect. Since the first phrase means "what" I do not understand why the only acceptable answer is "que vend..." Sitesurf, can you clarify, please?

Would it also be correct to say, "Que vend-il ce commercant?" I'm not clear as to when to leave out the pronoun.

Yes, please! I have the same question.

I tried a different form this time: "Ce commerçant, de quoi vends-il?" DL: "Non"

Sommerstore5 your ending for the verb is wrong it should be "vend".. but I tried Qu-est-ce que le commercant vend de quoi and it was not accepted by Duo but I still believe it is correct.

cette and commerçante are not in the answer options! But they have been written as the correct answer.

What's the difference between "quel" and "que""?

December 31, 2018


I believe that "que" means "what," and Quel means "which." The word "which" implying a limited choice, such as Quelle est la date? The date is limited to 365 choices.

....unless the date requires a year, then there would be virtually unlimited choices

I am sorry but why not Quoi?

'Qu'est-ce qu'il vend ce commerçant should be accepted.
