Why is "She eats a chicken" not an appropriate answer? Earlier I was encouraged to report that "the girl eats a cake", and eating an entire chicken isn't much less realistic than eating an entire cake. Is there a grammatical reason I'm missing?

I know I'm a year too late, but fairly sure it's due to the previous translation with the cake involving the word "an", meaning "the". So basically, it's just not asking you to translate the word "the" right now.

Thanks; that's corrected now. "She eats a chicken" is fine.
