3.2 Step 13 multiple-choice question

WARNING: ANSWER AHEAD!

I’m a little confused about the multiple-choice question for Discovery 3.2, Navigating Your Computer, Step 13. The question asks, “What happens when you open a file directly from within a compressed file?” Stepik says the “correct” answer is “It opens in a temporary location.”

From watching the video in Step 10, though, isn’t that only true if you’re using Windows? If you are using a Mac, it seems like the other multiple-choice response, “You can’t open a file directly from within a compressed file” would be the correct response. If so, the question is presenting two correct answers.

Am I missing something, or did the question simply assume a Windows bias?

Thanks in advance!
