Do NOT need the "one" at the end in English (sounds better without it)--Duolingo needs to change this.

I translated this to "Is it this?" and I got it wrong. Why?

I am not sure about "Is it this?", but a correct answer could also be "Is this it?" or "Is that it?".

Well, "Is it this one?" was accepted, but I really question the need for the word "one" there.

"Is it that one" is the same as "Is that it."

I wrote this as "Isst es das?" ("Is it eating that?") and duolingo said I got it right, although the translation is "Is it that one?" It did not say I had a typo.

I wrote "this is it!". Why is not correct?
