Why Tanah as "land" is wrong?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/joeldipops

Literally, it's not wrong, but contextually, "Earth" is the clear choice. Still I'd be comfortable with land being an acceptable alternative. Report it and see.

Tanah is soil. Bumi is earth


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/joeldipops

Bumi is the planet Earth. These here are the classical elements where earth means rocks and dirt etc.

1 The planet where humans live; 2 The third planet from the sun.; 3 The surface of the world.

Would Indonesians have recognized these four Greek elements or the Chinese five?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lieryan

As far as I know, Indonesians don't have a native "classical elements" concept, though we'd recognise both of these.

Indonesians would have recognised Chinese five elements since Indonesian have a much longer history with China since the ancient times. The influence likely come together with Buddhism, so the Five Elements is probably more ingrained into certain parts of Indonesian culture especially those that still have strong Hinduism/Buddhism influence.

Europeans came to Indonesia a bit later and also brought in their culture and religion, but at this point the classical Four Elements are also losing popularity in the then-contemporary European culture as this was during the dawn of scientific revolution; so I don't think it ingrained as strongly on Indonesian culture either. Though we'd still recognize Four Elements as classical Greek, though in this case it's less spiritual and more in the theatrical/academic sense.
