Εχεις περισσότερο φαγητό από τη γυναίκα σου is still not accepted. Isn't that the preferred form?

Yes, that is one of the 1749 possible sentences. If yours wasn't accepted you might have had an error. Please use the Report option on the bottom of the exercise page. Just check..."My sentence should be accepted."

I was marked wrong for using “τη” in one exercise (write what you hear) and wrong for using “την” in another (translate this sentence) very confusing!

I think, for English to Greek cases, the both options should be added to each of these exercises
