Functional equivalence translators, on the other hand, aren’t concerned so much with lexical concordance. Instead, they want to seek a word that’s equivalent in meaning, in each context.

Jeffrey, this post may be moved to the mobile Ed forum, so that the right people see it.

Just to make sure that Logos understands: are you stating that B should be the correct answer but isn't marked as such in the course, or are you stating that B is marked as correct but you feel this to be wrong?

Thanks for catching this. It looks like there is a problem with the resource recognizing the correct answer. For me it's marking both answers as incorrect, when B. should be correct. We'll get it fixed and update the resource.
