Bug in notebook quiz

Hi Kwiziq, I think there is a bug with one of the questions. The question 'How would you say "This witch smells very bad!" ?' keeps showing that I chose the same wrong answer, even though I am not choosing that response. This has happened like 5 times in a row and has reduced my lesson score!

The response it keeps showing as chosen -> Cette sorcière sent très mauvais. 

The one I actually chose -> Cette sorcière sent très mal

The correct translation for ‘…. smells very bad’  is ‘cette sorcière sent très mauvais’. Try substituting ‘bad’ with ‘good’ - mauvais for ‘bon’.  I suspect the quiz is showing you the correct answer. It is the smell/scent of the witch that is bad, not her sense of smell - she smells badly (substitute ‘badly’ with ‘well’).   Have a look at this lesson too.

Sentir to describe senses

Maarten is right. It is the same difference as:

That witch smells badly. -- Cette sorcière sent mal. (I.e., she has a bad sense of smell)
That witch smells bad. -- Cette sorcière sent mauvais.
