I disagree with charghwI’:

qar — be accurate
qarbe’ — not accurate =inaccurate
‘a’ — interrogative
qarbe’’a’ — it is not accurate, yes/no? = is it inaccurate

I believe charghwI’ parsed this is “is it not accurate”, which is a trap in English; by substituting “inaccurate” for “not accurate” we can avoid the trap.
