You give three translations: axis, axle and core. I use core and you say that that is wrong!. I think that the context of a sentence should decide the correct translation.

I've found this a lot with duolingo. With other sentences, you can argue because of the context, but in a sentence as short as this, it really should accept core as well.

It would be nice if could learn the 11,000 more common words first. I think Duolingo is trying to teach me about cars - so far I have had the words petrol, petroleum, axle, machine, mechanism.

Yeah, I wonder why the word for "axis" is really so important that it needs to be introduced at this stage.

I have lived in Latin America for 7 months now, and have never needed to use this word!
