I've wondered about this too. Are they always interchangeable, or is there a "rule" governing the usage?

Shouldn't "cia mheud duine" be an acceptable answer?

I think it should, report it if it’s not.

Thanks, already reported.

That is an acceptable answer so not sure what has gone on here. Only report received has “daoine” but I don’t think it’s yours.

Thanks, I thought it was a bit strange too as recent lessons say Cò and Cia were both accepted. In my report it only gave me the option to say "my answer should be accepted", or words to that effect.
