The thing is, in English we would never say that we wanted to "take a new ladder". If the ladder is new, you can buy it or get it, but it is unlikely that you would take it - or if you did, you might be stealing it!

Mascha53 is correct: In this context, in English you'd say ''We get a new ladder...'' or perhaps: ''We'll buy...'', ''We'l get'', etc. 'We take a new ladder' is wrong/bad/incorrect.

I thought ”a lua” was often used in the sense of ”to buy”. Oare nu este așa?

It is. I guess the makers of the course wanted some strictness, since "a cumpăra" is a more "proper" translation of "to buy".
