British English...'far from ' is never said in this kind of context. '....away from' would be correct.

A lot of people call a couch/sofa a settee. However this was judged wrong
Report it and then it may be considered correct in the future =)
'far from' and 'a long way from' are the same. Please correct this
Nobody would say "far" in this context. It would always be "away". You might say "as far away as possible", but that's not the sense of this.
"Keep the cat off the couch" would be a more likely thing to say.
Yes "away from" not "far from".
According to my dictionary, "divano"= "settee" or "divan", both marked wrong!
sofa is interchangeable with couch in idiomatic English. You should try looking at Word Reference.com
I wrote'keep the cat a long way from the couch'. Identical meaning marked wrong.
I am losing faith in the validity of your marking. Doesn't allow for variation if the alternative is correct, and is destroys motivation.
Divan/couch/settee are all valid answers. I want my point back for using divan
Only posh people have couches or sofas. The rest of us have settees.
