And waht about "meal" as a possible translation for "обід"?

"Meal" is "прийом їжі/їда." "Обід" is "lunch/dinner."

This exercise doesn't recognize some words when spoken correctly, especially numbers. Im native Ukrainian, born in Ukraine.

I tried at least three times to say this sentence, and the system told me every time that I got it wrong--I eventually gave up. Better luck next time, I guess.

What the meaning of hryvnias (гривень)? I still dont get

Hryvnias are Ukrainian currency. The name derives from a unit of weight used in Kievan Rus, and some other nearby countries. Compare that to how pounds are both a unit of weight and a currency.
