"He eats what?"
Translation:Ele come o quê?
I thought that we used "o" when talking to "you"....so "What do you eat" = "voce come o que?" But "He eats what?" would just be "Ele come que?"
Using the "o" is confusing.
The sentence is wrong!! What does he eat? = O que ele come? / he eats what? = ele come o quê?. what still means o que. When "o que" comes at the end of a sentence you add an accent: o quê
So there is no difference between "o que" and "o quê" in terms of meaning?
Yeah...someone please explain it because I am confused too. I did not learn anything about 'o que' and the structure of this sentence is funky looking. Please help!
Any suggestions to learn how to use the accent ^ it always seems so random to me.
Didn't someone say it's used at the end of a sentence to keep the e sound from becoming an i like it usually does on the last syllable? I could be wrong.
Is "qual ele come ?" correct ? How do we know when using qual ou que or o quê ? thanks guys !
o quê is normally asking for a definition/fact while qual is used when there are options
Qual is "which" and o que is "what". "O que quer você?" = What do you want? "Qual quer você?" = Which do you want?
why is this sentence not "O quê come ele" and rather "Ele come o quê". Would really appreciate some responses
"O quê come ele" would be right if the original sentence was "what does he eat" but it is not. It might help to imagine that someone is disgusted at what someone else eats and is asking "he etas WHAT???" :)
When I wrote ' Qual ele come' it was marked wrong and it told me that the right answer was 'O quê come ele.' This probably needs to be reported. It's got to be an error.
In this case, "qual" would mean "which" not "what" therefore it cannot be used
