Can I know when to use con and cái? Because in this question I write "Con thực đơn" and it's wrong.

Con is (mostly) used for living things, so it would not be used for a menu.

Earlier in the lesson, I thought there was a qualifier for The menu, but here there isn't. What's up with that?

Correct : tờ is a classifier used for thin paper items

Apologies for the lack of the right accents, but where does "Quyen" come in (I got that in a multi-choice and it was marked right)? Is it a classifier?

Why is TO tơ not included in the answer ABOVE which is in the lesson answer, only Thực đơn ? Inconsistent
