"Do you know that the daughter of an [or the] aunt is a cousin" is equally good English and also corresponds more closely with the order of the Hebrew sentence. I can't see why Duolingo is insisting on putting the cousin first and rejecting the above translation. (I have clicked on "my answer should be accepted", but if anyone can shed any light on this mystery, please do.)

Why is A cousin a daughter of THE aunt? In both English and Hebrew I would expect both cousin and aunt to be indefinite, since we aren't specifying which cousin or which aunt.
