This isn't a sentence that would ever be spoken in idiomatic English.

I think 'does it affect you' should also be accepted. It sounds much more natural in English.

    That would be "Påvirker det dig at..." in Danish.

    But translating into English, one should aim for a natural English sentence, not just a natural Danish one.

    That doesn't make any sense in English, it should be "does it affect you"

    Since it is conditional, "would it affect you" is better

    The sentence in English doesn't work because the context doesn't match. You either say, *can it affect you if...?" or "does it affect you that...?" So a hypothetical question vs a definitive question.

    The sentence makes sense: If you are near a kid who loves their teddy bear and has just lost it, it will affect you... at least acoustically ;-)

    This is the kind of dumb sentence that undermines the credibility of Duolingo.
