What is the correct translation? I wrote "The daughter meets her mother" which was marked wrong.

"jm. entsprechen" is more in the vein of "resemble sb." in this case, also note that the pronoun "ihrer" refers to her mother, not "your mother". So, a proper translation could be "The daughter resembles her mother". PS: I'm not quite sure if there is not a better matching word, since "entspricht" is quite strong, in the sense of "they look very much alike", but not necessarily fixed on looking the same, could also be that she acts like her mother or chose the same life choices, etc.
