SVG animate tag challenge question

There is a CSS challenge question here that states that a SVG animation can be made only by animate tag. But SVG elements can be animated by CSS animations too without any animate tag. For example as in one of my codes. Is that question correct? Or I am an idiot and CSS animations for SVG elements are not SVG animations?

Its obviously wrong, what about animateTransform, animateMotion and set elements? I still don't know CSS but I have seen people making animations using it too, and I can guess there has to be a way to do that with JavaScript as well.

In order to help you better you should include the link to the question. Or, in case you can't, you should transcribe it as it was written, because it could have been misinterpreted by you. But, what I think it wanna tells is that you don't need to use more than HTML to create an SVG animation. That doesn't mean you can't do it any other way.

Morty ūüá¶ūüá∑ no, it could be "Could you create an SVG animation with only animate element?" that would be correct, but "SVG animations can only be created using the animate element" is not correct.

Morty ūüá¶ūüá∑ "SVG animations can be created by only using <animate> element"

Morty ūüá¶ūüá∑ then they should use "just" or "merely" instead of only.

Sergei Romanov Well, at least it's confusing. But I don't think it's wrong. It would be if instead it said "SVG animations CAN ONLY BE CREATED using the <animate> element". I may be wrong, but I think it is just a matter of drafting.

Karak10 Well, ūü§Ē it's then probably a matter of language and I'm getting it wrong.
