"¿Es tarde o temprano?"
Translation:Is it late or early?
Why not, "Is he late or early?" If it were a girl should it be, "Es tarde o temprana?"
As pointed out by someone else in an earlier sentence, if the subject were a person the verb would have to be "estar". That's because it would be a temporary condition.
one of the possible answer given by Duo is "Sooner or later" What does not Work? and another question. Why not : Is it late or early?
I would say early or late, probably because it rolls off the tongue easier that way. Why is the Spanish expression expressed this way?
