In an earlier module, I replied with the words wrong and right and my answer was accepted, with incorrect and correct offered as another option. This time, it wouldn’t accept wrong/ right. Inconsistent :-/

This is wrong and that is right. (right/correct) Imo should be accepted.

'One' is implied and not needed here.

I used the words false and true, which is the same as incorrect and correct. This should be corrected too

@TarjaVermeer: Logically you are correct, but from a linguistic point of view your statement is "false." (Sept 2020)

In Finnish false and true = epätosi ja tosi. Although "epätosi" is mostly used in formal logic, mathematics, and computer programming.

Not all uses of a word in English will translate to the same word in Finnish. Or most other languages.
