I don't think so. At least I always say "da lunedi' fino a venerdi'". In any case: lose the upper case in Lunedi' and Venerdi'. Italian hardly uses upper case, just in names. You may have noticed venerdi' with the accent after the "i". That is because I can't find the accent grave on my mac, but it belongs on the "i".

Is "Lunedi a Vernerdi" acceptable?

"Da lunedì a venerdì" is correct: you don't need the "fino" but you need the "da".

the hover over 'through' suggests 'attraverso', but is not accepted

That is because of the different meanings of "through" "I am going through the forest" >> "Vado attraverso la foresta." "from monday through friday" >> da lunedì (fino) a venerdì.

Thank you. I suppose 'attraverso' should not be included as a solution under 'hover' in THIS context

No, but the system is not that refined. It gives every possible solution in any situation. Anyway, you probably will not make this mistake again, so you have learned something. and learning is the point.
