Why do you add "que"?

It is a conjunction here. I think of it as setting up dialog tags. 'She would say, "yes"'

Remember it this way: "She would say, that yes." works the same way with "no". In these cases it is mandatory.

A friendly suggestion ... "remember it this way" ... instead of "remind it ..."

It's weird, because I forgot the que, and thought sure I'd get it wrong, but then it was accepted without it!?!

"Que" is sort of used as a word of quotation.

If you were discussing a future situation, would you still use this?

For example, Person 1: What would she say? Person 2: She would say yes.

Instead of the above describing a past tense situation.

"Ella hablía sí." is not accepted. Hablar=speak, decir=say. Right?

Because its saying she would say 'yes' so you dont need to add that
