In other places, Duolingo presents "tūtū wahine" as grandmother. But in this question it only accepts "tūtū." Why?

Aloha e @Stephanos14021, I believe this lies in the formality level in the English terms "grandmother" and "grandma." In the previous lessons "grandmother" uses "tūtū wahine" and "grandma" uses "tūtū." I hope this helps a bit.
