Why is not "the tablet"?

That should be correct.

Why no "một"?

Also, why no 'cái' ? Both have been used with 'máy tính', 'máy tính bảng', etc, before in these exercises, and both are just dropped here.

It's optional. The sentence makes sense with it without it.

...by knocking it off the table...

Why do I get sentences wrong if I exclude the "mot" indicating "a", but Duolingo doesn't use it? Which sentence is incorrect, the English translation or the Vietnamese sentence?

It should be " con mèo đang dùng một cái máy tính bản"
