I wr "'tote This is the tallest building in town

Which is what one would actually say.

t was marked wrong because I didn't write 'the town'

I think this needs correcting to accept the answer without the "the"'

in English we would always use the with a superlative like tallest. If there were several very tall buildings in town, and you wanted to indicate that a building was one of them, you would say "one of the tallest buildings in town".
