Enceinte also means wall or enclosure, not just pregnant.

The translation of "demultiplie" given above is "reduced"...my understanding is that it means the opposite (to multiply). Can you address?

Bonjour Louise,

Thanks for writing. Démultiplier is in fact an odd choice of word here; the native speakers on our team all agree that it should be multiplier. In any case, you're right about the the translation - this is now fixed.

Merci encore et bonne continuation !

I agree Louise. In the Larousse dictionary the word “démultiplier”  means to augment the power of something, and other definitions I have found on Google back that up. This also makes sense in the context of this comprehension exercise (i.e. increasing the power by building more wings)
