"Do you have a brother?"
Translation:¿Tú tienes un hermano?
Why not "¿Tienes tú un hermano?" is promoted as answer? Is not it the one that is grammatically correct? It is accepted anyway.
You can use 'tiene' as long as you use 'usted' as well to make it a formal question, e.g. ¿Tiene Ud. un hermano? 'Usted' usually shortens to 'Ud.' (with capital letter and full stop) in written Spanish.
¿Tienes usted un hermano? I would use to say do you have a brother... Tu tienes un hermano is more of a question response to someone finding out that the subject has a brother
Which one would a native speaker say? 1) Tienes un hermano? 2) Tienes hermano?
The given answer was " vos tenes " but this was not in the drop down hints,
I got the "tu tienes" wrong twice in this lesson. Is there an easy way to remember "Tu tienes and el, ella tiene?" I mean some trick to make it kind of automatic when I'm trying to think in Spanish and not translating back and forth. I hope somepne understands my question.
