"Mengapa anggaran kalian tidak disetujui?"

Translation:Why was your budget not approved?

September 30, 2019



Why was your budget rejected (not approved = rejected)


Why your budget was not approved not accepted. Reported 20/5/2020


'Why your budget was not approved' is only a sentence fragment. It is not a sentence, nor is it a question. Question options are "Why was your budget not approved?" or "Why wasn't your budget approved?". To make it a statement we could say "This is why your budget was not approved."

The Indonesian phrase is a question as it has a question mark. If it didn't have the question mark, I don't know whether it also could be interpreted as a sentence fragment? But putting a question mark at the end of the English sentence fragment still does not make it a question.
