If refreshment has been accepted in previous exercises using boisson fraîche, why it now suddenly is rejected?
Refreshment should not be accepted. A hot chocolate is a refreshment. "Refreshments" is really vague and should not be a translation of "boisson fraîche" which is much more specific.
because there is an opposition here. do you want something cold or something hot? presumably the chocolate is the only hot drink available but there are more than one type of cold drink.(sparkling and non-sparkling water, lemonade, ginger ale)
"Do you want a refreshment or a hot chocolate?" was rejected 4 October 2020. I'm right there with ya, bud.
"Do you want a refreshment or a hot chocolate?" is now one of Duo's accepted answers.
Wondering if "soft drink" should be accepted here too?
no. too restrictive.
