"Timed Practice" went from 20 questions down to 17 questions?

My timed practice had 20 questions in order to beat the clock, and now suddenly it only has 17 questions? Even if I get every single question correct, the maximum amount of questions is 17 to be able to beat the clock and not 20 anymore. I tested this in both Italian and Spanish and it is the same problem in both so far. Not sure if this is happening to anyone else? I swear it went up to 20 questions before, just wanted to make sure I'm not going crazy haha.

I think whatever it was has been worked out. I've done 4 timed practice lessons today and so far they've all been 20 for me. :-)

I have it too. At first I thought it might be for lessons I finished a long time ago (which would make kind of a lot of sense to me actually), but it's all of them, and I don't like that.

I noticed the same thing for individual skills, one even had 16. But a general strength skill still gave 20 questions. I wonder if it's now based on how badly the skill needs refreshing.

Same here. I just did two timed practices that had 17 each and another with only 14.

Some lessons have only 7 questions! Some time ago, all lessons had exactly 20 questions. I prefer 20 questions per lesson. Duolingo should let us choose how many questions we want to do.
