      Sorry to hear that, Iaith. Can you give me an example of an answer that was marked as incorrect?

        I have the same problem as laith does. At the fourth exercise in the set C, I answered “What kind of person is your brother?”. Is my answer correct? Or is it incorrect?

          I think your question is fine and you are correct. Typically, however, I’d expect the answer to your question to be something like “My brother is a ________ person”, where _______ = kind, funny, caring, mean, etc.
