      Description

      In the signup form, (login/signup_form.php) line 74, this element of the form is set to be
      $mform->addElement('recaptcha', 'recaptcha_element', get_string('recaptcha', 'auth'), array('https' => $CFG->loginhttps));

      But the label reCaptcha returned by get_string('recaptcha', 'auth') is confusing to the user. Nobody but administrators know what's a captcha or reCaptcha.

      I suggest to change this by another new created string as could be "Security Question" or put the string get_string('enterthewordsabove', 'auth').
