I agree. Since tomar does mean "to take", the answer should have been accepted. If you are going to present a word where there is synomym, you should give feedback that "another correct answer is" like you do for some of the words. If it is a matter of formality, slang or which is more common, this can be stated in the drop down menu that gives information about the word like alternatives and gender.
In every other instance when saying "you drink this/you eat this", it has been implied in the form of a question with the correct answer being "do you drink this?" etc... It seems a little misleading to suddenly not have this as a question. How is one to know when to answer in literal English?
