"They want the chair and the plate."
Translation:Họ muốn cái ghế và cái đĩa.
I don't think "cái" has anything to do with "the." Classifiers are not articles. (That said, I don't have a good understanding of when classifiers are required.)
I type in "Ho moun cai ghe voi lai cai dia" and they said I was wrong. The correct answer is "Họ muốn cái ghế và cái đĩa" which is the same thing.
