Is the pronunciation of "Quem" qwem or kem? The female voice says qwem.

Why couldn't this be naquelo? Would that be "that castle"? Obrigada!

Exactly! Then, that would be naquele (masc). "Naquilo" is neutral. quem mora naquela casa? / quem mora naquele castelo? / quem mora naquilo? (maybe pointing at something (place) or talking about something previously mentioned)

Right, after I posted this I saw naquele in another question and I was like woops! haha

Thanks for explaining Naquilo-- I didn't know it was neutral until now :)

Why is "quem moro no castelo?" not accepted ?

It would be "Who do I live in the castle?"
