"Señor, ¿cuántas maletas tiene usted?"
Translation:Sir, how many suitcases do you have?
So was anyone brave enough to try "Sir, how many suitcases have you ?" Which of course is not conventional and probably not entirely correct grrammar. Me ? I did not try that I just caved and regurgitated the answer that DL wants .. Sorry just ranting .. DL IS a great app and most of the content is solid but that just makes the outliers that much more jarring. End rant
In English it's much more natural to put 'Sir' at the end - a pity duolingo marks it as incorrect.
"Sir" is pretty often used as a way to get someone's attention. You were likely marked wrong because you changed the meaning of the sentence.
NO, it is 'Sir, how many bags have you?' No need for DO or GOT! It is getting annoying.
