Shouldn't "Is this Tuesday?" also be accepted?
Same question... it would have been "Apakah hari ini hari selesa", wouldn't it?
Yes. You can
why is "hari" needed?
Isn't "apakah ini selasa" = "is this Tuesday"
So "apakah ini HARI selasa" should be "is this day Tuesday"
This sentence is difficult to understand because of no context. It should be "Is it Tuesday today?"
From Malay Selasa, from Arabic الثَّلَاثَاء (aṯ-ṯalāṯāʾ).
It can be read as
"Hari ini hari Selasa?" = "Is this Tuesday?"
Hari ini hari apa tebak
Ini ada teka teki aku berwarna warni tapi aku tajam tebak aku siapa
In English you would also say: Is it Tuesday today?
i don't understand for me the good answer is is this day tuesday
