Question worded incorrectly on Essential Unix commands Q14 & Q15

Question 14:
Rather than using human readable form, you can instruct "df" to use whatever units you want. Use "df" with "-BM" to change the block units to megabytes. How many megabytes are used by "/"? Include the "M" in the answer.

Warning - you have to be quick, as the disk space may increase or decrease while you are using the system. Retry the "df" if you feel you are right but the system says no...
Question 15:
Remove the entire git directory (it is not used in our tutorials). Now repeat the above calculation for disk space, making sure the units are still in megabytes. Include the "M" in the answer.

Warning - you have to be quick, as the disk space may increase or decrease while you are using the system. Retry the "df" if you feel you are right but the system says no...
Either this question is worded incorrectly, or the module is looking for the wrong size. It clearly states that it wants to know how many M are used by /, this number varies, however the question wouldn't move to "Passed" unless I input the Available space left, not Used.
