You are correct that Napoli is right. However, I believe that all the answers on this site in English only, so that is probably why Naples is the only accepted answer.

Should allow Napoli as an answer for Naples

Should accept alternate for alteranting. I learnt alternate current.
Apr 1, 2014
Whoever taught you that "alternate current" was the correct term was incorrect. "AC" does not mean an alternate or different type of current from "DC" (direct current). It was called "alternating current" because electricity switched back and forth between flowing one way, then the opposite way (i.e., alternating). Direct current flows just one way all the time. It was a great debate between Edison and Tesla as to which was safest for use in supplying electricity. Tesla "won." AC is the type of electrical flow that is used (at least in the USA).
Apr 5, 2014
This is true. Edison waged a dirty war in the press in an attempt to discredit AC, publicly electrocuting scores of animals, including cats, dogs, cows, horses and an elephant, to show how AC was more dangerous than DC, even though he knew the opposite to be true. He even secretly hired a bloke to create the first electric chair, despite he himself being opposed to the death penalty. Not his finest hour.

Can you accept Alternative Current for Alternating Current? :P
Apr 9, 2014
There is a big difference in meaning between "Alternative" and "Alternating".
