"I have two hands and two legs."

Translation:मेरे पास दो हाथ और दो पैर हैं।

The answer is supposed to be incorrect. Legs are not feet, last time I checked.

I think पैर can mean both foot/feet and leg/legs.

Indians, like people of many other cultures, don't differentiate between arms and hands or between legs and feet.

No, that's wrong. टांग = leg पैर = foot And we do differentiate between the two, but somehow Duo ended up thinking we don't!

It's interesting that you say that, because my husband and his family generally don't differentiate, and I have friends who are native speakers of other languages (e. g. Russian) who also generally use one word for the whole leg+foot and arm+hand unit. Do you really always say टांग when you mean above the ankle and पैर when you mean below the ankle?
