Why can't I answer with 'Die Frau isst Orangen' as well as 'Eine Frau isst Orangen'?

Die=The, Eine=A.

It says the other answer is Eine Frau isst Apfelsinen. for A woman eats oranges

    What's your question? "Apfelsine" is another word for "Orange".

    is there a specific time to use one or the other?

      It's more of a regional thing. "Apfelsine" is more or less only used in northern and central Germany.

      Why not Eine Dame instead of Eine Frau?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/wataya

      "Eine Dame" = "a lady"

      What's wrong with "essen" in this case?
