"Why does the cat not remember it?"
Translation:Hvorfor husker katten det ikke?
Wow! This sentence structure is tricky. Ikke comes right at the end???
The correct answer Duo gave me is "Hvorfor kan katten ikke huske det?", which is obviously different from the version is this thread... Are both right? Also confused about the use of 'kan'.
When using an interrogative pronoun we flip the word order and put the verb in front of the subject
You almost do the same in English by flipping "the cat" and "does" when going from a statement to a question.
If you place the verb where you would place "to do" your fine
