In American usage, too, pants do not denote underpants.

No difference between "βρακιά" and "παντελόνι"?

Actually, there is a difference. "παντελόνι" are what you wear on the outside "pants" or "trousers". "βρακιά" are "underwear" and worn on the inside and are called: "panties", "underpants" "boxers" ...etc.

nether underwear can be "pants" in UK English. (It's where "panties" is from - child language for "pants".)

why does DUO not accept"pantaloni" as the correct answer when it is exactly what is given HERE as correct ?? I reported it.

I'm guessing that you got the article wrong.

Also, it's παντελόνι with epsilon and not "pantaloni" with an -a- in the middle.

There's no way for anyone to tell what kind of exercise you saw (or if it was a multiple-choice exercise, what the three options displayed were exactly - they're chosen at random).
