Yes, I know that have different meanings, as I explained. What I meant was that if you get a "type what you hear" version of the exercise, then you should be allowed to enter both. If told to translate "Qui sont ces femmes ?" (which is what I got), then it should be "these women." Looking back at your original question, it sounds like you were given French to translate ("ces femmes"?) and it told you wives, which sounds like it was an error.
