Agree, Davu's English is how I read the PT suggested here. However, when being faced with thw English text "Do you know how important your notes are?", it's a bit difficult to come up with an answer that is accepted by Duo and still keeps the meaning. I attempted with "Você sabe qual importência têm as suas notas?", but that was turned down...
What is wrong with: "sabes como importantes são as tuas notas"? First I thought it would be the order of the words. But DL corrected me with: "sabes quão importantes são as tuas notas" - so the only interchanged word is "quão" instead of "como". This correction is strange and odd, because "Como" is also used by DL here on the very top.
Can anybody pleas enlighten me? - Obrigada de antemão.
