Quiz question - Adobe Illustrator Foundations

In Adobe Illustrator, is the area outside the artboard not called the "canvas"?

In the quiz for Illustrator foundations, it's marking "canvas" as incorrect.

From the Adobe site:

<blockquote> The canvas is the area outside the artboard that extends to the edge of the 220 inch square window. The canvas represents a space on which you can create, edit, and store elements of artwork before moving them onto an artboard. Objects placed onto the canvas are visible on?screen, but they do not print. </blockquote>
