Why is "No, I am sorry" not accepted?

Because for Brazilians would you be saying : Não, eu desculpo.. In Brasil often Não, desculpa

Yes...you're correct, I'm brazilian and we speak Não desculpa

The importance of a comma:

  • Não, desculpa (no, sorry)
  • Não desculpa (don't apologize him)

The brazilians also used to say:...Não, me desculpe.

"no, i am sorry" would be "não, me desculpe"

Tips said there's no practical difference between "desculpe" and "desculpa". Why doesn't it accept the second one as answer?
