"Tini is friendly, but Tono is naughty."

Translation:Tini ramah, tapi Tono nakal.

tapi is informal and used for speaking with people you know well. Tetapi is the correct one for writing. Duolingo is wrong here.


The word "nakal" itself is informal (I mean you don't call people naughty in formal speech even in English), this is pretty much casual speech so "tapi" is correct here.
