I put what are they doing without me but it said i was wrong even though they have she or they. Confused.
It's because the verb is conjugated "doet" for "she". It would be "doen" for "they".
How would you say "what does she do without me?" Would it be the same?
You probably had a write what you hear exercise, then you have to type exactly what the voice says.
i thoungt if a person (you,she,he) goes after the verb, it becomes doe not doet. Example: wat doe je? . Why it isn't "wat doe zij zonder mij"?
No, that is only true with je (or jij). Wat doe je als je dronken bent? Je doet domme dingen als je dronken bent. Otherwise, the verb form doesn't change.
Might be a easy question, how to know if it's a she or they for Zij?? Thanks in advance
It depends on the verb's conjugation. Conjugation of verbs for "they" zij end in an n. If it does not end in an 'n', then zij must mean "she".
Zij eet - She eats. Zij eten - They eat.
Zij zijn - They are, Zij is - She is
Zij gaan - They go, Zij gaat - she goes.
That would require 'zou' (imperfect tense of zullen): Wat zou ze doen zonder mij? What would she do without me?
Maybe because in the present tense of all verbs (including doen) the singular is formed from the stem of the verb (doe) and then adding -t in second and third person (jij doet; hij/zij/het doet), but the jij form drops its -t when inversion occurs.
