Serious bug in particular German "select translation" exercise

Since this is a "select translation" exercise, I can't seem to submit a written bug report through the standard mechanism.

The bug is as follows: When I'm asked to select the translation of "the cook" I'm presented with two correct answers: der Koch and die Köchin.

I have no way to know the gender, and if I don't choose the "right" gender it's marked as incorrect.

Aside from the fact that "die Koechin" needs an umlaut.
