Yes! This isn't a good way to teach and test people's understanding of words when the options you give are not correct words

I think it's just like a puzzle, it shouldn't be a problem after you know which word is lacking, Duolingo it's just testing us

Please fix this, it's been over 4 months. The report system should have an "other" option for cases like this which don't fit the other options.

What is the difference between おおい and おおぜい? The hints give 多い (おおい) for "a lot of".

According to a comment in this thread, おおぜい is specific to people, contrary to たくさん, which is more general; looking at the Wiktionary entry for おおい / 多い, it appears that the latter is general too.

It is possible, but they made it annoyingly easy to miss

Is it always います with 大勢 and です with 少ない and never the other way around or what...?
