I think your translation is correct too, since sometimes in italian just like in spanish they use plural for time 'le ore', 'las horas', but I don't think time is always plural in italian... In fact I think you could say: 'che ora è?' and also 'che ore sono?'... both meaning 'what time is it?'...
i did the same but the wrong word was 'knows' and the correction says it should be 'know'. correct solutions were: someone know what time is it? • Does somebody know what time it is? Could any English native tell me why 'knows' is not accepted there? is 'someone' considered as a plural? thanks
JoToutin, the complete compound verb here is "does know". When you use a compound verb like this, only the first of the verbs agrees with the subject. Example:
I do it.
You do it.
He does it.
Anyone does it.
I do know.
You do know.
He does know.
Anyone does know.
I agree with Germanlehrerlsu's great explanation and will add to the confusion by saying that if the sentence were NOT a question, "knows" would then be correct - i.e. "Anyone knows what time it is." The "does" is not understood in the statement like it is in the question. English, like any other language, has its eccentricities and they simply have to be learned.
Popochi54: I have to disagree: "anybody" can be used in an affirmative statement, as e.g. in the sentence: "Well, anybody knows that! emphasizing 'anybody' -- meaning something's so obvious that everyone knows it including the least informed person on the planet. "Somebody knows that" would imply that whoever it is who knows it, should 'fess up', as an examaple. As for 'somebody' it can certainly be used in a question: "Is somebody knocking on the door?" -- I heard something. That's quite different than "Is anybody knocking on the door?" -- we can't stand outside here in the cold all night! Context is everything.
Both google translate and Reverso use qualcuno not qualcuna for this sentence. Reverso Context also sites many examples of "qualcuno sa " does anyone know. So I think the idea that qualcuna is used because the feminine "persona" is inferred, may not be the correct explanation. Perhaps a native speaker could clarify.
No because you are stating that "it is" a particular time and then the question is whether anyone, or someone (and yes these are interchangeable, one implies that multiple people can or should answer while the other is a request for a single response) can tell you the correct time. Another way of phrasing into a sentence would be "is it 10:00?" but this cannot be used as the generic question provided in this exercise.
