festesz egy ügyvédet: why is it not correct?

I responded with "te festesz egy ügyvédet" and got it wrong. Also confused.

I got that one right.

It is probably illegal. :)

Anyway, it sounds kind of like "Will you paint a lawyer (for me)?" But maybe it could be accepted.

Miért nem "fested"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jzsuzsi

egy ügyvéd ( a lawyer) comes with indefinite conjugation.

Please explain why te is mandatory when en is not

Hungarians are afraid of the "stsz" cluster ;) They don't want to speak of "festsz"

Can it also be correct to say: Ugyvedet festel?

I think "-el" is only used after a sibilant sound to avoid a collision with "-ész."
