But no. It's a vowel that doesn't exist in English, called a "nasal vowel". It's like if instead of saying all of the word "pan" in english, you stopped before the "n" and acted like a snooty rich person instead.

great, pain is ''pa'' and pomme is ''po''

I agree.. Its really hard to distinguish the difference.

Pain should be pa not po

Is there a way to tell this is a question just from the audio? I thought it said "This is my bread."

You can tell by the inflection (the fact that the pitch of her voice is raised at the end of the sentence). This makes it a question.
