"The people are sleeping on the bed."
Translation:लोग बिस्तर पर सो रहे हैं।
I went with पलंग for bed - I learned बिस्तर as 'bedding'. Are they interchangeable?
पलंग refers to the wooden structure while the bedding and mattresses refer to बिस्तर.
Generally they can be used interchangeably because you don't think of sleeping on a पलंग without the bedding and vice versa. You can search palang and bistar on google to see pictures.
Thanks. Should either be an acceptable answer? And could you tell me which is in more common use?
