Isn't it supposed to be 两百

I agree. It technically makes sense to say 二百, but no one says that.

You are correct. Duolingo is wrong.

Duolingo has been wrong many times

Yes, I agree. But, I think they just put it another way for beginners to understand easily.

Oh yeah makes sence now

Yep no-one actually says 二百 but it is technically correct. 两百 should be the given answer.

And what is the pronunciation ?

It's funny I've never seen/heard erbai before lolol

I'm Taiwanese American. My parents would say 'liang bai' not 'er bai.' I think you would sound like an idiot if you said 'er bai' in Taiwan.

Pretty sure it's 两百 LIKEWISE WITH TIMING


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/koz481131

I didn't even think it was 200 but atleast Duolingo accepted it.
