Why only the translation "entrance" is correct? In some other sentences of the same lesson "scara" is to be translated as "stair". Above, it even says "ladder".

I think "entrance" is NOT a correct translation at all.

"Scară " is normally translated to "ladder " or "stair". In communist times the state built a large number of apartment buildings (flats) "blocuri (de apartamente) " which were divided into units having a common entrance, staircase and in some cases elevator. This is called in Romanian "o scară (de bloc)"

I'm guessing it's supposed to be a ladder??

Its stair or ladder

Entrance is the complete wrong translation, scară either means stairs or ladder

Scară = ladder or stairs. I'm a native Romanian speaker.
