KAI APEKRIQHSAN AUTW hOI MAQHTAI AUTOU
hOTI POQEN TOUTOUS DUNHSETAI
WDE CORTASAI APTWN EP'ERHMIAS;
I construe hOTI with APEKRIQHSAN ~ [they] replied that...
TOUTOUS as the object of CORTASAI ~ To satisfy these...
ARTWN modifying CORTASAI ~ To satisfy breadwise... [of breads]
And ultra-literally it might read:
"And replied to Him the disciples of Him that 'Whence these will be able any
here to satisfy breadwise upon a desert?'"
It can be cleaned up in English, of course:
"And His disciples replied to Him: Who will be able, here upon a desert, to
satisfy these with bread?"
