Το παιδί γνωρίζει τη νομισματική μονάδα, should have also be correct!

My answer isΤο παιδί ξέρει τη νομαστική μονάδα. Why is it wrong? I read in the comment of a moderator that ν in την was omitted before βγδζθλμνρσφχ. So, I think it should be accepted .

The problem is not the V. It is the word νομισματική.

νο-μισ-μα-τι-κη" here there are 5 syllables.

Yours has a missing syllable....νο-μασ-τι-κή there are only 4 syllables.

Παρακαλώ. Counting the letters/syllables is a trick I learned through my own mistakes. ;)
