"Os meninos dormem numa cama pequena" is also correct, isn't it?

I wrote the translation correctly as it appears here, but the lesson tells me it should be "The boys sleep on 1 little bed." The lesson should accept my translation. Please fix.

Linking them is not madatory. "Em uma" is more common in written language.
