Sadly, the option to report the English translation has been removed from many of these sentences.
Speaking of "date", it is more common to say "What is the date today?" or "What date is it today?".
What is today's date? What is the date today? (I know it's "now," but the only "now" that matters in terms of date is "which day.")
It could be a real sentence in some circumstances. Let's say you're up late on February 28th, you're not sure if it's a leap year, and you don't have a clock. You would be legitimately confused about what date it is right now.
