I'm sure Duolingo is confusing efficacy and efficiency.

What is the difference between the two? Would you please explain?

Well, if I take the principal meanings of each from a dictionary: efficacy: the ability to produce a desired or intended result; and efficiency: the state or quality of being efficient. Does that help?
