Underwear should also be accepted

"Pants" should be accepted here too.

Undewear or panties would be acceptable but not pants, for that would mean trousers

Natt is right. Pants are only trousers in U.S. English. There are many, many other varieties of English. But I will agree that when I say trousers consistently for the long-legged outerwear in the U.S., I frequently get funny looks.

the hint also gives "knickers" but won't accept it has an answer.

I've been told by a native speaker that it's not polite to use this word in public. People say instead "nguo ya ndani" when talking about underwear in public.
