me lève

I think "je me lève" should be translated as both "i wake up" and "i get up". Why do you consider "i wake up" as wrong answer?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Conjugate reflexive verb se lever in Le Présent (present tense)"

Bonjour Saptarshi ! Simply because "to wake up" is expressed with another verb in French = "se réveiller". "Je me réveille à sept heures, je lis un peu, et je me lève à sept heures et quart." (I wake up at seven, I read a bit, and I get up at quarter past seven.) I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
