I put "Siapa yang pemberi..." I still don't understand why this is incorrect. How can we know when to use "yang" in a "Siapa..." question?


Yang has to be followed by a verb or adjective, depending on the context. Though it can be followed by certain subjects (kamu, anda, etc).


Same for me. Sometimes yang is needed. Other times not.


I could see the rationale, but "Who is the giver of this bag", is a very odd English indeed. "Who is the bag giver" is equally odd. So, why couldn't it simply be translated as "Who gives this bag?" However there is an occupation called "care giver".


Literal translation is why. It's up top the translator to rearrange to words
