Why is there no classifier 'cái' for khân quàng here?

Still rejects 'cái'.

Because cái would mak it "the scarf". without the classifier it refers to the general concept "scarf"

Why do you think the sentence is referring to the concept and not a specific scarf?

bạn phải mang cái khăn quàng khi làm việc ở trụ sở chính -- still being marked wrong, guys.

The English translation does say "the scarf" so why is "cai" rejected????

Hints on hovering over the the indicate "đứa, cái, một'. Other hints are not correct either, and need to be cleaned up.
