Pistoke can refer to any plug you can plug in, power plug, USB cable plug... They should rephrase the question.

would agree, it is slightly confusing

In (American) English the same.

"power plug" isnt really what its called in English. Its just a "plug" so that should be accepted too

Agreed. As a native English speaker, I've probably said "power plug" fewer than ten times in my life. It's just a plug.

What sort of... is the same as 'What kind of...' and should be accepted


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ABLOSB

Never heard of a 'power plug' in my life!

Still, no one says power plug in English. If you want to go semantic an English speaker might say connector or connection for a non 240v 110v plug.

Why do you need the "of" before power plug?
