I put that too thinking it seemed like what the sentence was going for but idk anything anymore!
Still not accepted in dec 2015. It should be right. And on another sentence sp to eng he does not ask El no pide was marked wrong also
Pide is "asks for" and pregunta is just "asks" or "questions".
Ella tiene una preguna=She has a question Ella pide un vaso de agua= She "asks for" a glass of water.
I' m agree. More, They asked Maria an bottle= Ellos pidieron a Maria una botella, cuando la frase lleva un complemento indirecto y un complemento directo se puede omitir el FOR y Ask = Pedir
I wonder if maybe pedir is used when asking for something, such as ordering food in a restaurant, and preguntar is used when asking a question to obtain knowledge or information? Or are they interchangeable?
ask as in ask for something = pide question as in question a person's knowledge or ask for information = preguntar BUT I got it wrong
In the conjugation diagram "we ask" and "we asked " are the same word, preguntamos. Is this really correct?
What! I was just trying to sound like Yoda!!!! I said "She does ask not"!!!! IT DIDN'T ACCEPT IT!!!!!!
It sounds kind of Kennedyesque:
"Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country." --John F. Kennedy
Btw all of the posts I read help soooo much!! I'm glad they have this on here because most of what I "understand" comes from these posts
"She does not question" is still not correct 12/30/15. "Correct" as far as I know, of course.
While ask and question are roughly the same. To me there is a subtle difference. Here are 2 examples.
Man A: Why did you call my wife? Man B: Are you questioning my motives? Man A: I'm just asking.
The police questioned the suspect . (Interrogated ) The police asked the suspect. (Request for an answer)
Questioning can have an implication of doubt, skepticism or interrogation while asking is simply a request for an answer.
Just a thought for people interested in nuances.
I gave "She does not ask" as an answer, but Dio says it is not the correct answer. WTF?
