Which ngeli does "it" belong to? "Tunaiuza" was accepted, but with a typo.

It's Ji/Ma. I don't know if the hover hint tells you -- it does coming at the discussion from the sentences tab, but that gives info for the translation, not the question.

Ok, so that would be the default ngeli for a general "it" then. So then my question would be can't "it" be something already mentioned, and therefore belong to another ngeli? As in Q:"What are you doing with the table?" A:"We are selling it." It seems to me that more than just "Tunaliuza" should be accepted here.

I agree, but for Duolingo's purposes, I would use N/N agreement for unknown "it", as it seems to be the safest option. You should probably report it anyway, though.

If the object isn't describe....You can put whatever you want :) You can sell potatoes, cars, houses....
