Translation:How many Swiss francs do we need?
Can anyone explain the structure of this sentence please? What is the rule here for verb placement?
Same as always. "Wie viele" is position 0, "Schweizer Franken is position 1 and brauchen is position 2. As it's supposed to be.
"How many Swiss francs do we need?" Isn't it supposed to be "How much Swiss francs do we need?" instead? As far I know, Swiss Francs are uncountable, just like dollars, euros, etc.
Money itself is uncountable, but maybe there's a logical explanation. Otherwise, it's an incorrect sentence and should be reported.
edit: After a little thinking, I've come to a realisation that English does the same. You don't say "How much dollars do you have", you use "many".
In English you never say about money "How many", it should be "How much"! So, dear Duolingo, please correct it. Thanks.
