Error in LFS201 section 28.19.d "Knowledge Check 28.4"

In the LFS201: Essentials of Linux Sytem Administration course in

 section 28.19.d "Knowledge Check 28.4 there is a mistake:

 

 The question asks for the command to convert a .vmdk image to a .qcow2 file.

 The correct answer gives the command for the other way round, though.

Afaik "qemu-img convert -O vmdk myvm.qcow2 myvm.vmdk" converts a qcow2 file into a vmdk file as far as the man page states.

 

 This can be confusing/misleading, please fix the question or the answer.

 

Best regards
