Not as nice

Not as nice

It's one of the quirks of English idiom that "less nice" and "more nice" are never used, so the question ''Tes amis sont moins sympas que les nôtres'' should be translated "Your friends are not as/so nice as ours", not "Your friends are less nice than ours".

Bonjour Harry,

You're correct! This test question has now been reworded correctly.

Merci et bonne journée !

Agreed. I didn't find this in the lesson you link to, however.
