Duolingo hack - use czy in questions, lub in answers.
If the question uses czy:
do you want sandwich or do you want an egg?
Chcesz kanapkę czy jajko?
I will give you one of this things , pick one.
There are two possible answers assumed A) egg B)sandwich
Chcesz kanapkę lub jajko?
Do you want something, I have sandwich and egg, do you want (sandwich or egg)?
there are three possible answers assumed, but four are acceptable: 1) no 2 ) yes egg 3) yes sandwich 4) yes both
Chcesz kanapkę albo jajko?
Do you want something?, I have sandwich and egg, do you want (sandwich or egg)? but you can have only one of those.
there are three possible answers assumed 1) no 2 ) yes egg 3) yes sandwich
Officially: "albo" is the 'exlusive or' (XOR in logic), so it means that I eat either sandwiches, or eggs. Not both. "lub" is 'inclusive or' (OR in logic), so it allows also for the 'I eat both sandwiches and eggs' interpretation.
Reality: most native speakers seem to either not know this or not care about that distinction.
