Kio estas via uzantnomo? Kio estas via serĉligo? Kio estas la aerrapideco de malŝarĝata hirundo?
What is your search link? Fine, but "What is the airspeed of an uncharged swallow??????? I am sure I didn't understand that one.
Ĉu oni ne uzas la vorton „login“ en tiu senco? En la pruntantaj lingvoj ĝi ja ofte uziĝas tiel :)
I think this translation is not technically correct. Kio seems to mean "what is your usename", is it a dog, a cat or something else. It seems to me that kiu would be better used meaning "which is your username".
In this exercise we have "Kio estas via uzantnomo".
The immediately preceding exercise (in my practice stream) was "Kiu estus via problemo se vi farus tion?|
Could someone explain why "Kio estas . . . ." is correct in the first case, but "Kiu estas . . . . " is required in the second case? (And I don't think the subjunctive estus/farus is in play here :-) )
Both sentences are translated as "What . . . ." in English. Can anyone clarify why the difference in Esperanto?
Agreed if “what is your username” means “I would like to know your username” (which it probably does in 99.9%) But theoretically it can also mean what you said about dogs, cats, and maybe eight-letter words.
