I was marked wrong for writing "Чи ви маєте дешеву кімнату?" I was told by some people when asking a question, to be polite, add "Чи" at the beginning of the question. Is this usually used in everyday speech in Ukraine or is this something that is not in common use? I find here in the USA that white it is not necessary to use чи at the beginning of a question, it is used, although not very often (I will use it when talking with my boss though, ;) ).

I have reported this, but if I have reported this mistakenly, please let me know. Thanks!

Accepted now.

Not necessary to invert word order (Чи маєте ви...), but does sound more natural this way.
