Is हैं the same as हो because हो was given as one of the tiles to select but हैं wasn't? Also खाती was given in the correct answer but the only tile close to that was खाते


तुम सेब खाते हो or आप सेब खाती हैं


I think I can answer the last part of my question. Both खाती खाता and खाते are correct because verb endings take into consideration gender and plurality. The subject आप (you) could be masculine or feminine or plural.


Another correct solution- तुम सेब खाते हो।


Strange; I correctly chose तुम सेब खाते हो because I didn't see an option for हैं yet the translation shows here as आप सेब खाती हैं।


What's the difference between tu and tum


If Duolingo allows both तुम and आप to be used in answering this question, I wish both would be shown as the correct answer when we make a mistake so we learn both of them at the same time. I always try to write the आप answer but if I make a mistake it only shows me the तुम correct answer. It’s very frustrating.


Shouldn't the correct answer be aap hai?


I wrote आप सेब खाते हो and it was accepted..


Why aap ho is incorrect?


In present tense verb ending agrees with subject. आप is always considered plural, even if you are only being polite to a single person, so must be हैं.


हो (ho) is reserved for तुम (tum).


I was given the tiles, with only "तू सेब खाती हैं।" as the answer. No "आप" as an option. This has to be an error, right? I think "तू" can only be singular.
