"Die Frau isst am Tisch."

"Ist" is accepted even thou it means completely different thing than "isst"

May be it is because "The woman is at the table" is also a correct sentence.

How come the table doesn't need 'der' or 'das' in front of it here?

Tisch here is dative so it would be "dem Tisch". "am" stand for "an" + "dem", therefore "dem" is implicit.

So, according to Duoling, on is not correct in this context replacing an (implied in am as an+dem), so in what contexts can an be used as on? Thanks!
