Chatgpt cannot understand word count or 'increace word count'

Cannot understand the word count request. I’ll ask it to write something to 2000 words and it will be 750, i’ll ask it to rewrite it as its wrong and it goes to 1000… then it goes to 1200 then back to 750.

Only way to make it work is to do it part by part (each paragraph seprate). Really annoying.
