"Ο χαμαιλέων έχει ένα ιδιαίτερο χρώμα αυτή τη στιγμή." - is a grammatically correct translation of the Greek. Further the word "ένα" is also idiomatic Greek in conversation,. The above should be accepted as an alternative translation..

I had ... έχει ένα ιδιαίτερο χρώμα .. and it was marked wrong. Is it really?

    Should "...αυτή τη στιγμή" be "...at the moment" or "...at this moment"?

    You can put the adjective first? I put χρώμα ιδιαίτερο and it was marked wrong.

    You put the adjective before the noun in Greek.

    Actually it can be used like this though in very few situations.

    "Ο χαμαιλέων έχει ιδιαίτερο χρώμα αυτή τη στιγμή. " ie without the "ένα", wasn't accepted.

    Would "ειδικό χρώμα" be acceptable as well? Or is there a nuance between "ειδικό" and "ιδιαίτερο"?

    "Ο χαμαιλέων έχει ιδιαίτερο χρώμα σε αυτή τη στιγμή" got marked wrong, but sounds right to me. Is this form correct or no?

    Σε αυτή τη στιγμή Is not correct. :)
