Was tragt ihr normalerweise bei der Arbeit?

English Translation

What do you usually wear to work?

Shouldn’t this be a capitalised “Ihr”?

No. “ihr” is the the simple informal plural “you”. Capitalized “Ihr” would be an archaic formal you, and the modern version of that would be “Was tragen Sie normalerweise bei der Arbeit” for both singlar and plural.

But the translation is ‘you’…

oh wait so is it asking what do “y’all” wear to work (as the Americans say)?
