Why is "дід" not acceptable for "grandfather," in this sentence?

    That's a good question. I believe it should be accepted, please report me.

    I think in some places дід may not sound polite enough, and дідусь is a safer option, but it depends.

    Imho "мій дідусь" rather is "my grandpa".

    Totally agree especially when the next task of matching words had дід matching with grandfather
