Please check with a native speaker if "How many songs do you know?" is also a correct translation for this sentence. This was my first intention for translation but I did not tried to use it in the placement test as the program seem to go more for word-by-word translation.

(not native) I have seen "nummer" used for "song" online so I would say it's correct. But "number" can also refer to a single song in English as well, so in the right contexts, it might not be necessary to translate this sentence using "song".

native speaker here. this sentence could indeed refer to songs, allthough might also refer to litterly numbers. for example I could ask a 4 year old kid how many numbers she knows.
