Translation:Do you have a lot of relatives?

And it is still marked wrong in August 2019.
The question that preceded this one gives the reply:
"We have have many relatives" Written is Chinese: 你们有很多亲戚.
This question asks "你有很多亲戚吗"？
Note: 有很多亲戚 is exactly the same in both questions. So in the previous question it is perfectly acceptable to use "many" in the reply, but you marked wrong for using "many" in this one.
A perfect example of the frequent inconsistencies in this course that mean you get marked wrong for their inability to update any answers and to not have thoroughly thought through this course.
And as usual even if it is reported they do nothing.
Compared to French or Italian (which I am also doing), this is a sham of a course, even if it is free.
It's annoying how bad the English is in Duolingo. I constantly need to make effort to write as bad as possible in order for my answers to be accepted. A relative is something you can count (1relative, 2 relatives...). "A lot" is used to things that are not countable (a lot of water, a lot of pain...).
