what is the answer !!?

Probably the automotive industry :)

Beer industry

It should be: Which* is... not what is


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AlexinNotTurkey

Definitely not...that sounds quite strange, at least in American English.

Actually, it's just more formal. There is nothing grammatically incorrect about "Which industry is..." in American English. In fact, since you are implicitly asking to pick between options, it is more grammatically correct but less frequently used. It should be included as a correct solution.

You generally use "which" in English when you have a very limited set of possible answers and there are far too many possible industries for that. İ would even say "What day of the week is it?"

I began my answer with 'In Germany what is the biggest industry' and was given the 'corrected' version 'In Germany what IN the biggest industry' How can this be reported and changed?

Same for me. Reported twice. The system will catch up.

I used 'which' and was marked wrong. Which should be added to alternative correct answer otherwise a lot of people are going to get their answers wrong without any solid grammatical reason

Why is duo obsessed with germany

As translation of "en büyük" I set "greater" but the system tells it is an error ...why? If in English greater and bigger are sinonimous?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/elo270331

"Daha büyük" = greater, bigger and so on "En büyük" means the greatest, the biggest

Vielleicht das Auto machen

In good English we say "Which industry". As an English teacher, I get infuriated by Duolingo insisting on poor English
