A lot of errors in Hindi fill in the blank questions with gender choices

For the questions where you have to fill in the blank in hindi if you have gender options, the 'hoop' over the end of the word isn't there anymore, so you just have two masculine choices, once of which is actually the feminine.

For example, "Raj's Daughter" where the blank is the 's, isn't showing a feminine choice for the 's

I've noticed this since the web update that moved over from 'Y/X lessons' to 'N% complete'

I am also seeing this issue. Seems like a sizing issue. If you zoom way in, you can see the little stubs at the top where text is getting cut off.

Good call, if I zoom in from 100% to 110% in chrome I can see the stubs of them, enough to keep me going until it gets fixed. That earns you a lingot!

Thanks!

For those with a little bit of technical skills, I've found a way to work around the issue.

In Chrome, right click on the text box with the bad display and select "Inspect". In the window that pops up, look for a line that says "overflow: hidden" If you uncheck this box, the top of the characters will show.

Look here : (CLM922130) https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/32132245 that works but I have to restart every day this action. I did not find how to save it.

Yes, the only easy way to make it "stay" is to leave the browser open where you've made the change.
