Ποια ευκαιρία είναι ωραία; was marked wrong. i cannot understand why. I think περίπτωση is case

Occasion doesn't quite correspond to ευκαιρία. Περίπτωση, περίσταση are way more fitting.

περίσταση, περίπτωση - occasion

ευκαιρία - opportunity, chance

I hope the difference is a bit clear. They could be interchangeable in really specific cases, but it would create a mess in sentences like "It's for a special occasion", which translates to "Είναι για ειδική/ιδιαίτερη περίπτωση", but not to "Είναι για ειδική/ιδιαίτερη ευκαιρία".

Hope this helped. ^.^
