5 pennies vs a nickle...is this a grammar or word choice lesson? Either nouns are suitable..but if using Hawn lexicon...Police is more correct.

Not sure why "she is a policeman" is wrong (does that infer it should be "police girl" or something?

I'm pretty sure that they accept "She is a policewoman."
