Problem in the Italian skill Measure

Translate "Lei è piccola ed io sono grande" was an exercise in the Italian skill Measure. You were required to select the correct words from a list of provided words.

However, the only adjectives left in the list of words were fair, true, old, long, pure, sick and young. So it was impossible to give the correct translation of: She is small and I am large.

I selected young and old from the list, just to move forwards, and this was given as correct.

So the correct translation to lei è piccola ed io sono grande is she is young and I am old. Which even to a relative beginner like me is obviously incorrect.

I tried reporting this to Support but I was having trouble for some reason, so could this pleased be passed to the correct group of people who can correct it.

PS I was using the IOS App (iOS 7) on an iPad mini.

Hi psionpete! Sorry, but I don't speak Italian, and it's a bit hard for me to help you with your problem or make any suggestions or anything. However, there is a topic for this sentence, which you can find here! I suggest you make that as a comment in the topic as your problem is about this. Hope you can get better help after doing so! :)

P.S. I don't think you should use the Support button for this type of problem, instead, try clicking the Report a Problem button on the question you currently need help with! :)

Hi,

The translation is correct, as piccolo means also young and grande means also old.

Collins has a dict online, check it out yourself.
