Is there a reason why "many" isn't accepted instead of "several" belts?

Is it just a matter of specific word choice in this sentence (as in, can they be used interchangeably if it wasn't asking for flere/several)? In English, from what I've experienced, people do not often make the distinction between many and several.

I agree, people do not make the distinction between many and several.

Many is more than several. I have many cats, 10 or more, I have several cats, 3 to 5, I have a few cats 2 or 3.

That depends on where you are from. Where I lived, many and several can basically be used as synonyms.

Anyone here knows if this "flere" has the same usage from the german "viele"?

It's closer to "mehrere." "Viele" would be "mange."

Would "a few" be really a wrobg answer?

That would be «Mannen har belter.»
