A slip is, among other definitions, a (usually slight) mistake or error, caused by carelessness:

I made a slip when I was writing the cheque.

A slip of the pen/tongue is a small mistake in writing/speaking.

Hi Teachers,

Oh! I've just noticed that the text in the test and in its answer differs. So, if the test example is "Whose fault is it that the pizza delivery's late? Yours, I'm afraid." then why "blunder" is not correct here? ? Or it would be correct?

Thank you,
Vladimir.
