Hi Abdula,

What you are saying with  -

M'attendriez-vous?

is

Would you wait for me?

To say -

Could you wait for me -

with inversion is 

Pourriez-vous m'attendre?

Fais-tu la vaisselle (in a quiz) has no question mark so I opted for a different answer. I think this is confusing and should be corrected (a ? added)

Hi Becky, 

You need to use the Report It button on your correction board as it will link directly to that quiz and can be fixed .
