Native english speaker confirming.
The two valid answers given as English responses have different meanings and one of them is not a valid sentance in modern english.
"How much are these oranges?" - Is valid but implies you are asking the price of them to buy them
"How many are these oranges?" - is not a modern english sentence either formally or informally. If the question is asking the number of oranges the sentence should be "How many Oranges are there?"
If a correct response is "How much are these oranges?" then the word 'much' must be given as a choice. The translation, "How many are these oranges" is not a proper English response.
This is a different sense. If the intent of the phrase was related to cost, then the phrase would be "Berapa harga jeruk-jeruk ini?".
I would suggest either, "how many oranges are there" or "how much are these oranges." I can't tell which is meant for sure.
How much are these oranges (cost). Or How many oranges are there? "how many are the oranges is not English.
There are still too many direct translations in the English examples. The English examples need to be edited so that they make sense, otherwise the learners will not have any idea what is implied in the Bahasa Indonesia. Let the language learners figure out for themselves what each individual word actually means in the target language sentence if they want. There are dictionaries for that. There's Google Translate.
We do need to be flexible with translation especially with B.Ind. Since 'ini' implies 'here', compared with 'itu' which implies 'there', so I put "how many oranges are here?" but it was rejected. I am disappointed as I'm sure it is simply asking how many (close to the speaker).
This course - although I love it - at some parts quickly become memorizing GIBBERISH, NOT ENGLISH
Can it mean "How much are these oranges" in the sense of "How much do they cost"?
I have tried "How much for these oranges?", but thought that "berapa harga" would be used.
It is definately how 'many' - because you can physically count oranges. How 'much' would be to quantify liquids or things that you cannot count.
