"What is your opinion? Are clothes really useful during summer?"

Translation:Kion vi opinias? Ĉu vestaĵoj vere utilas dum somero?

Why is "kio estas via opinio" not correct? I found one hit for it in Tekstaro, "Nun kio estas via opinio pri la dua?" But it does seem that "opinias" is more common.


There are 4 hits for kio estas (la|via) opinio in Tekstaro, but opinii as a verb is far, far more common (>1000 hits for opini\VF). I'm not sure if they'd consider such minor usage acceptable. You can always try submitting it and seeing what happens...

I think Carbrule's standard answer applies. It's not accepted because nobody has added it yet. Remember that the Esperanto sentences are primary. Someone must have come up with the sentence "kion vi opinias" and came up with an idiomatic translation in English. Then the system showed you the sentences in reverse order and you (Don) reasonably used a noun in your translation.
