I thought "tandis que" means "whereas".

I thought the same thing. Why is it not acceptable here?

When would you use the English phrase, "Whereas not"?

It can be used as part of a sentence. Definitely not on its own like Duolingo has it.

I don't understand why 'mais non' is not a possible alternative.
