What do people mean when you don something?

In a French test the answer was "You don a hat so I was wondering what you think it might mean!" :#

To don an article of clothing is a way of saying someone put on, or wore an article of clothing (usually referring to something fancy like a top hat or a gown).

It's a good question and it's language related. I'm not sure why this post got so many negative votes.

In fact, “don” is a contraction of the Middle English phrasal verb “do on”, and “doff” similarly comes from Middle English “do off”.

I'd say I learn something new every day, but I learn lots of new things every day here on Duolingo.

Thank you, Sir Pete! I'll be adding that one to my vocabulary!
