I don't really understand why dydd is correct, when earlier we were taught than 'on' a day was translated as 'ddydd'. I now know that duo accepts, and indeed expects, both, but I can't see why...

The mutated form ddydd is better Welsh for 'on' a particular day, but it is not always taught to beginners for some reason, and it is not always used in casual Welsh.

Best to use it.

I made the same 'mistake' in not choosing the answer with dydd also.

The constructions are different in both English and in Welsh, so when you are learning it is useful to match them up:

  • Dw i'n mynd i wisgo... - I am going to wear...
  • Gwisga i... - I will wear
