I know it's not a direct translation but 'The water in this pond' is more natural English than either 'The water of this pond' or 'This pond's water'.

I guess what the green owl is trying to teach is the correct usage of prepositions and not the phase per se.

So, as you said while it would be more natural to say "water in the pond", the hindi translation would be "तालाब में पानी".

I guess duo is trying to focus on the difference of में and का etc.
