Curious that the mouseover tip says "foot" or "leg." How to differentiate between the two? I was marked wrong for "How many feet does a buffalo have?"

To my understanding, foot = bàn chân, leg = chân

My partner is vietnamese so I can always get an expert opinion and she said you are correct. bàn chân is foot and chân is leg.

Reported: "How many feet does a buffalo have?"

The word is interchangeable in vietnamese.

A literal translation would be "A buffalo has how many legs?" but this is not accepted

'A buffalo has how many legs', is a direct translation and is also correct english, so it should be accepted.
