Unsure of the difference between Masse and Massnahmen...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sanguinius

Maße is a physical measurement (The measure was three meters), Maßnahmen is an action (We need a measure to control the amount of crime)

Massnahmen has more letters in it

Why is "measurements" unacceptable?

How can "Measurement" and "Measures" be correct and yet "Measurements" be wrong?
