I don't like the "cooks cook" either. But a chef is not the same as a cook.
I’m tempted to make a ‘triggered’ meme about the number 88. Well, if your next sentence has ‘14’ that’s just asking for it.
I said "eight eight cooks are cooking here," and it was marked wrong. I didn't hyphenate any of the other ones and they were marked correct :/
I think if you are off by a letter they give it to you. And hyphens don't count. So in theory you were off by the letter y.
No. A chef is not the same as a cook. One is someone who just cooks/prepares food. The other also organizes menus, staff, etc. A chef is way more qualified than a cook (who will often work under a chef).
