Why would светри be wrong? wouldn't it be just the normal plural form, which fits here?

    Indeed, it fits here. The 'choose the right word' exercises are generated automatically and are sometimes wrong.

    There was no choice "sweater" in the mobile app's Tap-to-select. What the heck is a jumper?

    "Jumper" is the common term for "sweater" in the UK

    Thats the British word for sweater, it may also be used in Australia and/or New Zealand.

    Should be accepted answer 2 and 3 in here. Or just adjust those answers to avoid ambiguity.

    Sweater, jumper and pullover are all widely used an interchangeable in the UK. With regard to the one-piece garment va-diim describes, it might be called a jumpsuit or a playsuit, but both these are as likely to be long-legged trousers as they are shorts.
