Do you know what is your size? is not correct. What is wrong with that?

For the last clause, you need SOV order

You never use 2 questions. The first sentence is already a question the second sentence shouldn't be reversed to a question.

I wrote "do you know what's your size?" But Duolingo corrected to "Do you know what your size's", which really can't be the right answer...

these are posted as correct answers:

Correct solutions: • Do you know what his size's? • Do you know what your size is?

"size's" is NOT a proper contraction in English that I am aware of for the past 50+ years, Any comment?

You're correct, that isn't a correct contraction. However, a sentence shouldn't really end with 'is' either. It should be: 'Do you know your size?' to be grammatically correct.

I'm sorry to disagree but this case it's an example of an indirect question, a more polite way to make a question. the question as you propose it would traduce Voçê sabe o seu tamanho? so it's different what in the example wants to express.

Correct, that isn't an acceptable contraction.

Why is "Do you know what its size is?" wrong?

March 12, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Granny_Patti

We're talking about the size the person might wear, so his size, or her size. You could specify and ask about the size of the dress or the coat. You could ask 'what size is it?', but how you phrased it doesn't sound right at all.
