Usually, except perhaps in the case of the red carpet! Also there is a difference in material and decoration between rugs and carpet. Rugs can be made from a wide variety of materials and usually have multiple patterns and colours.
When our mistake was in the double t or p, DL would consider "almost correct",wasn't it???
I think they got rid of that a few weeks ago. It also seems like they are inconsistent with which spelling mistakes they'll accept and which ones they won't (in a different sentence, I spelled "entrata" wrong, but I still got credit)...
I put "mats". I usually use that word instead of rug. Said it was wrong though.
This in incorrect! Light blue! Seems to be a consistant error in Duolingo.
I also agree that "tappeti" would be translated by many as "mats" not just "rugs"
Mats should be accepted as the word is virtually synomymous with rugs and is the preferred word for many-including me.
This challenge sentence keeps popping up through the misery of peat-repeat 35 lessons. DL, please, at least change up the colors of the carpets. Also, perhaps challenge with something like this: I tappeti gialli vengono dalla Turchia (o Pachistani, o India, o xyz)
