"When in India, Get a Haircut" question amiguity

Question 3 in the quiz for "When in India, Get a Haircut" is ambiguous.

Q. 3. Consider two families of the same income: one family is in a developing country and the other family is in a developed country. Which family is more likely to have a dishwasher? Remember both families have equal incomes.

It is unclear here if the term "dishwasher" means machine that washes dishes (developed country) or a person who performs the service of washing dishes for you (developing country).

After seeing the correct answer, it becomes obvious that you meant the machine, but is unclear before submitting your results.
