I put 'mother raises the bucket' and it's wrong. I though kuinua was also 'to raise?'

I put "Mama is lifting the bucket" and was marked wrong. We haven't seen any distinction between present and progressive before, so I think my answer should be right. Am I wrong?

Oh, now I see it rejects "Mama" as a translation of "Mama". That is wrong.

How do I know if it is "bucket" or "buckets"?
