What is ber and what use does it have?
Yeah, when "ber" and when "frågar"?
"Be" is used if you're asking someone to do something or if you're asking them for a favour.
Wait, why not svarar på?
The words frågar and svarar haven't been taught before, I think, so if it's a mistake and anyone can fix this you're more than welcome to do so :)
They're taught where this sentence is, in the Questions skill.
Sometimes sentences are shown in the wrong place, but unfortunately that's a global bug that we as course contributors cannot fix.
