Translation:Does the university have three libraries?
Yes. In both English and Spanish, we can ask a question by making an indicative statement, rather than using an interrogative sentence.
Both languages do that through using rising intonation, and using a question mark in print.
That said, I do believe that DL should use the interrogative sentence form (reversed subject-object) more often, and use the indicative (statement) form less.
And yes, the robot did not use rising intonation. Good thing the written had a question mark!
That's just not how questions are phrased in (American) English.
It is technically correct. But a better answer is the Duo answer. See Canielconcasco above.
I wrote "La universidad tiene tres biblioteca" It yelled at me for forgetting the "s" at the end of bibliotecas. I'm triggered >.>
It might seem unimportant, but forming a correct plural is one of the things you need to know to communicate in Spanish.
It is because you didn't write a plural, and even though there is a 1 letter difference, it completely changes the meaning of the word.
I've never seen or heard it "yell". Perhaps you were yelling at yourself for making a silly mistake?
Regardless, spelling words correctly is important, as others note.
I make mistakes far too often. I tell myself to be more careful. Getting mad doesn't help me. Nor does it change the fact that I was wrong.
The same way just without the questionmarks. Since the word order of normal sentences and questions can be the same you have a questionmark at the beginning as well, so you immediatley know what it is.
Help..What is the correct answer.After I have put in Does the university have three library's, it still says no....??
Libraries, the plural form, not library's, the possessive.
It's because you added an apostrophe in the "libraries" and that changes the meaning of the word. You also made a type. It should be "libraries", not "library"
" Tiene la univercidad tres bibliotecas? "
Is that correct?
Thanks in advance. Efcharisto
Well, it depends..
"The university has..."
Or "the university does have..." (Does the university have....?)
The DL English sentence with "Does...have.." is correct.
This sounds more like a statement than a question, although it can be a question
Apperently duolingo doesnt like "Does the university have three librarys?" As of 10/6/18 -reported
It is because you have made a typo. If you wrote it all correctly, then it would mark it as correct. Most of the time, it doesn't care if you have 1 typo, but I don't know what happened in your case.
I believe that the difference is that a "typo" typically is a mistake with one letter. "Librarys" is not a mere typo. It is a misspelling. And DL normally doesn't accept such bigger mistakes. However, I agree that it often overlooks typos.
P.S., a good example of a typo occurred above, when someone wrote "type" instead of "typo." (At least I believe that writing "typo" was the intention-- the sentence would then make more sense. )
