I've just been marked wrong for 'large' black cat. Any reason?

Large is correct as a translation of 'fawr' and would normally be accepted.

However this sentence was an erroneous one in that the adjective order is incorrect.

The sentence should read cath fawr ddu, size being more important than colour.

The sentence was deleted some time ago but still lingers in the system.
