Why is the correct standard English formation not considered correct? Your bot does not recognize " You do not choose who you are, but you do choose for whom you vote." The word order in Norwegian seems to be nearly analogous.

Audio: The last part of the sentence should be read as a statement like the first part, not like a question (as duo lingo incorrectly does here).
