"Does the invisibility cloak exist?"

Translation:Chiếc áo khoác tàng hình có tồn tại không?

Những not accepted but chiếc duolingo sucks


At least an explanation is needed.


Why is chiếc here? It's not required, but going on the supposition that 'multi-word nouns don't need classifiers' -- witness 'cây táo' earlier-- why it's even suggested is puzzling.

Moreover, chiếc seems to be associated with machines--airplanes, cars, motorbikes, submarines, etc--so with a coat it seems out of place.
