So how does Hindi handle questions with negative questions?
• answer as if there were no negation (नहीं would mean "no, this question isn't difficult"),
•answer it with regards to the negative (नहीं here negates the sentence as asked and means it is difficult), or
•get hopelessly confused like we do in English? ("Did you not see it?" "No." "No you did, or no you didn't?" "Yes." "Yes, no or yes, yes?"...)
That’s what I wrote. However it means something different from Duo’s answer. His/her answer means “Is this question easy?” Our response means “This question is difficult, isn’t it?” Duo’s answer sounds awkward in AmEng, most people would say “Is this question easy?”
Is the confusion in the Hindi or the HindEng?
