"Why do you look so angry?"


April 14, 2018



I feel like 为什么你看起来这么生气 should be an option instead of 非常

I put 你为什么看起来生气? and got it marked wrong. First, why can't 你 be in the initial position? And second, how are we supposed to know when to use 非常, 很,or nothing at all when there's no "very" in the sentence?

TBH it's pretty strange... I always learnt that 非常 means 'Especially'... usually 这么 means 'So' in terms of a measure word... And I also thought the more regular way of saying this sentence would be "你为什么好像这么生气了?“

It's strange that I can't use "很" here when a similar exercise at https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/26016405 involving "你為什麼看起來很緊張?" requires "很" and disallows "非常".

Using 非常 in this sentence is very awkward. A better way of saying it would be 你为什么看起来那么(or 这么) 生气?
