But for the second it replies

The emphasis is mine and not Alexa. So whilst the answer is factually correct, it isn't what I asked and so that is a fail.

I thought it might be that she has trouble understanding my Northern Ireland accent, but she didn't have any issues when I asked her what radius meant.

OK, the 1.5 meter thing may have been a glitch on my end, but listen to the attachment to hear how she answers the circle one:

Weird. It is almost like 'she' doesn't realise the difference between diameter and radius.

I was previously using my Alexa device and it gave the same answer whether I said a radius or diameter. But I just tried asking the Alexa app on my Ipad. She ignored the inches part, but gave the correct answer in both cases.
