Julia's mother is sick!

'Mother' is माँ (mā̃).
मामा (māmā) is 'mother's brother' (uncle).

To me it's a bit confusing too because in Spanish ( my mother tongue) mamá is mum

'Julia's mother is ill' is an acceptable (and probably more common) British English alternative.

मामा is 'uncle' (specifically, mother's brother), not 'mother'.

'Julia's uncle is ill' is accepted for this sentence.

I like the recent update that repeats the question you got wrong at the end, but only asks for the part you originally messed up. Nice!
