In an earlier exercise, it asked me to use "δε μιλάει" for "does not speak", but in this exercise it asks me to use "δεν μιλάει" Is that a mistake or are both usable?

    I said that man in place of the man, how that man would be said in greek


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

    This/That man = Αυτός/Εκείνος ο άντρας
    The man = Ο άντρας

    The first structure uses the demonstrative pronoun (which in Greek must be followed by the definite article), the second uses only the definite article.
