Thats right! i saw the same mistake in another exercise. thanks for being proactive, people like you is essential for this tool.
Can someone explain why we would use "no" instead of "na"? Thanks.
Na is used for femine words, like na segunda-feira, no is used for masculine words like no sabado: on Monday, on Saturday
Em does mean on, but na/no mean "on the". Na and No are actually contractions of "em + a" and "em + o". In this case you cannot omit the 'the' like you can in English so the only correct answer is "Em + a" which becomes "Na".

Interesting! I guess b/c I'm only a native English speaker, I don't think of it as "On the Monday, Wednesday, and Friday"...so I didn't think there should have been a "the" to begin with. It sounds like it's an idiomatic thing about Portuguese specifically b/c you'd basically be saying "On the second-day, fourth-day, and sixth-day", at which point, you do need the "the". Thanks for the very good explanation NobleJ!
