Having spent the first 5+ years of my life there, I can absolutely assure you that "Babushka" means grandmother, but is often used just to refer to old ladies, and "Matryoshka" is a stacking doll.

great quiz but as a russian speaker babushka actually translates better as grandma but in the streets if you say "smotri na etu babushku" (look at that old woman/grandma) it better translates to old woman but in most scenarios it is grandma
