Please explain how the question requires the use of Tu, rather than Ud. or Uds. This is a common DL problem and it is very annoying.

Actually that is quite helpful, thanks. What is bothering me is that "Do you want to put on this jacket?" does not indicate which "you" they expect you to respond to.

And therefore they must accept both and usted (I'm omitting ustedes because of this jacket). You can help your fellow users by using the Report button to indicate that your answer should be accepted (assuming you had no other errors).

Thanks for the support, Marcy. I do report these things and, in fact, get a number of responses that DL has reacted favorably to the report. Good call on the "This" clue.
