"What is his name?"
Translation:Quid est ei nomen?
Write this in Latin: What is his name?
I gave the wrong answer by selecting the words: "Quid" "est" "nomen" "tibi". It was still accepted as a correct answer, but with the notion that I had a typo in my answer! I just selected the wrong "boxes", so it should not have been accepted.
I could be wrong, but I don’t think “sibi” works here.
The third person reflective pronoun refers back to the same person as the subject. For example: “Cesar sees his friend” like “Caesar sees Caesar’s friend.”
But in this particular sentence “nomen” is the subject so I can’t see how a reflexive pronoun works.
I’ve only ever seen this construction used with: tibi, vobis, ei and eis.
I think you need to report an error.
If someone can point me to a mistake I am missing, please do.
