Why is jeder und jede singular?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MelvinCheung

is 'Jeder und jede' an idiom?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MelvinCheung

and how can 'sie' be translated to 'it'?

Presumably, 'it' is a question; question is 'die Frage', a feminine noun, and is therefore referred to as 'sie' not 'es'.

so, if the sentence is "Jeder und jede wird sie anders antworten."(instead of beantworten), then the meaning will be "Everyone will answer them/her differently.", isn't it? (I have seen another discussion about antworten and beantworten, but I couldn't find it again)

Hmm, good question, I'm not sure about the difference between antworten and beantworten actually. Hopefully someone can answer this....
