On the quiz it said that "c'est amusant " could mean it is funny or this is funny

I did not see in the lesson or video where c'est could mean "this is". That sounds specific to me. What do you think?

Hi Ashley - remember that 'ce' usually translates to 'this' or 'that' (and "c'est" is ce + est) but it's not usually very helpful to think about what individual words translate to in English. Expressions like "C'est amusement" can loosely be translated as "It's funny" or "That's funny". The actual sense will depend on the context.
it can be both ways

I appreciate it can mean both but it then seems wrong to mark an answer as incorrect because one only puts "its is amusing" which is the only answer it gives in the lesson to explain this
