Daer. Mason, the ITT interpretation E to K teacher. 

Hello, This is Jungyoen kim, a student of your ITT interpretation  class. 
Thank you for the usuful lectures. I've been learning a lot.

I've just read your comment about my Quiz answer submitted.

You pointed out (actually I got minus point on that ) that "requrie - 요구하나요?" sounds akwarad or not appropricate.

But in the dictionary it is said, 요구하나요. especially for the law, regulation matters.
or if it's requried according to the law, the word 'require' means, 요구하다.

  • 미국∙영국 [rɪˈkwaɪə(r)] 
  • 영국식 듣기
  • 1.

    동사 필요[요구]하다, 필요로 하다

  • 2.

    동사 (특히 법·규칙 등에 따라) 요구하다

So, I dont fully understand why it is wrong.
in Korean, it doesnt sound akward either, in my opinion. as we use also in this way in real life, I think.

Could I please gently ask you to look through it once again?

Thank you.

Hello Jung Yeon!

Thank you for clarifying this with me!

If you carefully read the question (as I provided the sentence in my comment), you will notice that this sentence is not a question.

It says “Does the state of CA require …." So, instead saying "요구하나요?", "요구합니다" would be the correct way of interpreting the sentence. The expression wasn’t “awkward” or “not appropriate” at all. It simply altered the meaning, which is the comment I left for the reason of deduction in mark.

I hope this is clear!

Best regards,

Mason U, CMI-Korean
