"Does she want a banana?"
Translation:¿Ella quiere una banana?
Isn't it also correct to place the pronoun ella AFTER the verb? As in "Quiere ella una banana?"
Plátano is used in Mexico and Spain. In Colombia it's "banano", yes, masculine.
CLARO que es válido primero QUIERE. En español es válido en ambas formas: ¿Quiere ella un plátano/banana? o ¿Ella quiere un plátano/banana?
"un banano" is also used in Spanish-speaking countries and should be considered an acceptable answer.
Why is the ella not after the verb? This seems like a statement to me, not a question.
Both are acceptable. You can do this in English, too, but the different word orders have slightly different connotations.
Why can't you say, "Quiere ella una banana" I thought you could put the subject after the verb in a question?
I think that depends on the country and region. In some countries "plátano" has a different meaning than "banana". In any case, at least in Mexico, "plátano" is more used.
Quiere= when you are talking properly to a person. “Quiere usted un plátano” or When yoy are asking about another person: “Ella quiere un plátano” Quieres= when you are asking to someone that is a closer friend: “Quieres un plátano”
Yes, but many people consider 'banano' as a banana tree, so it is usually safer to use 'banana' or 'plátano'.
Yes, it's used in Colombia. Maybe they're looking for a term that's more widespread?
una banana. Bananas are grammatically female in Spanish. You can also un plátano, however I would need someone to explain the difference.
i am reading this she wants a banana ? quieres on the other hand do you want that is asking the question so i am totally confused now
Always keep watch for the question marks. The statement and the question both use the same words and order. When the question is spoken the marks added changes the inflection at the end of the sentence to signify that it is a question.
I'm getting this as a fill in the blank question. Does she want a banana? ¿Ella quiere una _? It doesn't seem like a real question. I'm seeing "banana" and then just typing "banana". The question would be exactly the same if it said "Type the word _banana." It's more of a test of the location of the "b", "a", and "n" keys then it is a test of Spanish.
