I didn't hear this as a question and had to correct the translation after I looked at the screen. It would be nice to hear the question form and statement form in close succession now and then. Oh! It turns out the next example was as a statement, but by then I had forgotten what the question sounded like! :-(

I typed it as a statement again! Plus a new "wrong word": "hall" instead of "hallway."

"Ka lumi ho‘opaupilikia." The room where troubles are finished = RESTROOM, or BATHROOM. "Ka lua" is a toilet or hole, as in "Is the toilet at the end of the hallway." One envisions an outhouse.
