Isn't father отец?

·папа - dad (informal) ·отец - father (formal)

Why Duolingo has chosen to translate папа as ‘father’, is a mystery. «Мой отец из России» was accepted.

That's my opinion, as well. father = отец, mother = мать, dad = папа, mum = мама. Can't get my head around why they mix these up while insisting on perfectly exact translations elsewhere.
