Tentara = Army. Prajurit = Soldier. So DuoLingo is wrong here with the translation.

Should be prajurit, not tentara

...tidak mungkinkah adik perempuan juga menjadi tentara? ...just wondering why men are stereotyped as soldiers (or police, or firefighters, or engineers)

Betul. TNI = the Indonesia Army. Tentara Nasional Indonesia.
