Im questioning whether or not tobacco is a word that you need to know

Why is cái thuốc lá rejected?

It should actually be 'diếu' thuốc lá... but I want to know why the tobacco classifier isn't used here? Hi Jose, it's good to see a message posted a day ago and not years ago, I figured no one was using Duo lately

Can a classifier be left out in coordination?

I got this right three times in a row and was marked wrong and it won't let me skip it... grrr.

Omit 'the', it encourages ud to use cái

Doesn’t “thuốc là” refer more specifically to cigarettes?
