It is also very confusing in that when you click the underlines words it says hamjambo but then that is incorrect and it is supposed to be hujambo.

It's super hard because it all depends on who you're talking to!

This exclamation point makes it very confusing since it's supposed to be a question

It's even more confusing when the correction wasn't one of the options. I also read that you greet tourists differently, but how do we know if Juma is a tourist?

Without "mambo" in the choices, I can't complete this exercise.

I have the same problem. Very frustrating.

Why is "Hujambo, Juma?" not correct?

Yes

Mambo Juma is listed as the "correct" answer but this is not consistent with other examples, and is not listed in the hints

Also, Mambo Juma is listed as the correct answer, but "Mambo" is not an option for choice.

Mambo is not given as a choice in this exercise, so it is impossible to give the "correct" answer

Isn't it nitpicking to say You're wrong! if a person says these 2 words in reverse order?
