這個字你會讀嗎? Is listed as wrong. Are both not acceptable?

It's technically not incorrect, but people don't usually say it like that.

I wish they can display the characters in Chinese traditional not just simplified

They are only teaching simplified. However if you install the Zhongwen Chinese Popup Dictionary extension in Chrome and hover over the character you get both versions (as well as the pinyin and the meaning).

It seems like this translation is for can you read this character and not for can you read this word. Characters and words are not the same.
