the word translation offers "grate" if I hover, however it accepts only drain. Ralo was a new word for me - how would I know?

Agreed -- this is a recurring issue.

What does this even mean? I don't touch the drain??? When would anyone say this ever?

yep, but the test accepts only 'drain'. If you write grate, you fail.
