So what is the difference between "Il menu e sul piatto" and this version with "sopra"?

This does not really make sense in English...

I agree. The correct translation should be: "The menu is on top of the plate."

It makes perfect sense. Just as the food is on the plate, the menu is on the plate.

Su = on. Sopra = on top of.

Maybe the menu and the plate were once in a relationship together which turned sour. The menu has moved on.

For the first 2 audio questions of my last threw practise sessions, there's a long pause after I repeat the phrase and then I'm marked wrong, although I know I've said the phrase correctly. This is becoming very annoying DL.
