I don't think that belongs there.

This seems to be an increasing problem so please comment here if you come across more examples. This example is not present in that unit, the system seems to have randomly inserted it.

I have finished my Welsh tree so I am only strengthening skills now. This is happening to me occasionally when I am strengthening a specific skill. Yesterday, whilst strengthening "Animals" I was given the sentence "There is not a lot here, is there?" to translate. Whenever I've noticed an "interloper" sentence such as this it has always been question number 18 (usually if I answer all the questions correctly I only get 17 questions in one untimed strengthening session). This leads me to wonder whether it might be an A/B test rather than a bug?

I actually like this happening, I feel that it keeps me on my toes. I have noticed that these "interloper" questions are the ones I most frequently get wrong, which shows that I need to continue with the exercises even though my tree has been fully gilded. However, I can appreciate that if people are filing error reports every time they get an "interloper" sentence then it will be causing the course contributors extra work and could possibly be delaying the course's graduation from beta.

This is definitely not only happening in the Welsh course. I have just been doing an English from French lesson on numbers and the last sentence I had to translate was "You are beautiful".

I've noticed that Duo occasionally throws in a review question from an earlier chapter. That might be what is happening here. There are a few bugs in the system though, so hopefully the course contributors can sort it out.

Many spaced repetition learning systems do this as a way of reminding us of earlier work so that it doesn't 'fade out'. It is likely to be a feature of the duolingo system as a whole, nothing to do with any particular course.
