The program seems to have a thing about knives and spoons. Why not knives and forks?

I'm guessing this sentence is from the KI/VI lesson. Both kisu "knife" and kijiko "spoon" (as well as chakula "food") are in that class, but uma "fork" is in the U/N class, which the course presumably hasn't taught yet.

Why is VYAKULA wrong here? I'm still not clear when each is expected...
