I got "My sibling pours oil on the table." wrong despite the hover hint suggesting "sibling", so I reported it. Am I missing something?


No. You can report it.


"Sibling" is now accepted. I was wondering, though, whether Hungarians use "testvér" as often as implied by Duolingo. Most native English speakers would not even know of the word until they reach high school and meet it in a technical context. Normally, your mother would call out "Hey Greg, where are your brothers and sisters?", never "Where are your siblings?".


My brother pours oil "onto" or "on" the table, not "to"!!!

The English needs to be "onto the table", if the destination of the poured oil is the surface of the table.
