Grand-mère, tu es née avant ou après la guerre is correct, mamie is not the only correct answer

The answer could also been "Mamie, es-tu nee avant ou apres la 1ere guerre mondiale"

It didn't say 'world' war, so I only translated 'war' but apparently that was wrong? Surely Mamie could have been born before or after some other war?

There is no mention of world in the french sentence either, so your mistake was something else.

I'm marked as wrong for "quand est-ce-que tu est née "! I don't understand why.
