"Apakah kamu tidak mengingat saya?"

Translation:Don't you remember me?

October 12, 2018



i'm fairly sure you can form a question just by changing your intonation, so when do you need to / can you put apakah at the start of a sentence?


Mostly for formal sentences; however, it is good to learn as our accents make it less obvious when forming questions without this bit of clarity.


why does it use kamu (informal) and saya (formal) in the same sentence?


As long as they're referring to different persons, it's okay. For example, if "saya" (first person formal) is used, continue using it for the rest of the sentence. If "kamu" (second person informal) is used, continue using it for the rest of the sentence.

In this sentence, "kamu" and "saya" is used in the same sentence because they're referring to different persons (second and first person respectively).


Can i use "ingat" instead of "mengingat"? Is there a difference?


Why is "You don't remember me?" marked incorrect?


Because you included the question mark your version is also correct. Without the question mark your version would be a statement; whereas their version would still be a question (lacking the appropriate punctuation). You should still report it.


why is "have you not remembered me" marked incorrect


Did you not remember me?
