I put 'for him' as 'i Ceri Lingo' can mean both 'to' and 'from' Is this not the case for iddo?
It can mean 'for him', depending on the context, and that is an acceptable answer in the database.
Thanks. That's strange, it marked me wrong. Maybe I spelt it wrong, but I didn't think so.
What is the difference between "i" and "iddo"?

If you are running the app on a mobile device which has an internet connection, you can get to the web-based version of Duo by using your device's web browser - you do not have to use the app. Try going here for example.
i is one of a dozen or more Welsh prepositions which conjugate for person - they change if they are followed by a personal pronoun:
- i - to (and some other meanings, depending on the context)
- i'r plant - to the children
- i Sioned - to Sioned
- i Siôn a Siân - to Siôn a Siân
But with some personal pronouns, some changes take place:
- i mi - to me
- i ti - to you
- iddo fe/fo - to him
- iddi hi - to her
- i ni - to us
- i chi
- iddyn nhw - to them
With other prepositions of this kind, other changes may take place - learn them as you come across them.
There is a useful summary of basic grammar here which includes a section on prepositions.
