Question regarding Module 9 Certification Quiz - response could be two of the listed items

ClaudetteD2

Module 9 Certification Quiz - "Nous étions jeune" could be translated to either "We were young" or "we used to be young". I selected "We used to be young" but was marked incorrectly because test was looking for "We were young". How can we determine which response the quiz is looking for when there are two correct responses in a multiple choice question and you can only select one?

Salut ClaudetteD2 !

You are right - Nous étions jeunes (careful of the s at the end of jeunes there) could indeed be translated as either "We were young" or "We used to be young," so the quiz was wrong for implying that "We used to be young" wasn't an acceptable answer. Thank you very much for pointing out this error, and apologies that it occurred! The quiz has been amended so that this problem no longer exists.

Merci encore,

Liss
