I wrote "Is het ver weg?" (which I had just learnt from another exercise in this very lesson) and it was rejected - is it wrong? (If so, why is it taught in another sentence?)

Ver weg is "far away" .. Did the other sentence have the word "away"?

I don't remember anymore, but I seem to remember that hovering over the combination "ver weg" gave the translation "far". I have no problem accepting that "ver" is "far" and "weg" is "away" and "ver weg" is "far away" - but what's the difference between "far" and "far away" anyway?
