"Is Alex German or French?"
Translation:Alex Alman mı yoksa Fransız mı?
As a native speaker, I would say "Almanyalı" and "Fransalı" (note the "a") would be the correct way to indicate someone from Germany and someone from France, and in general it would also be ok to call a German or French person that way. In certain context though, the distinction between being from Germany and being German might be emphasized: "Alex Almanyali bir Fransiz" (Alex is a French from Germany).
Lily, when you write "Alex Alman yoksa Fransız mı?" i understand that in English as: "Alex is German or is he French?". The first part is an affirmation "Alex is German" and then, the second part of the sentence is a question "Fransız mı?"="is he French?" I assume it is because we have "yoksa". "Yoksa" is used ALWAYS accompanied with the question particle following BOTH possible options in question". Have a look here: https://www.duolingo.com/skill/tr/Questions---2/tips-and-notes, by Selcen, about how to employ "veya" and "yoksa'. Enjoy it!
