"I need a ticket."
Translation:Yo necesito un boleto.
I was surprised to see that they added that "una boleta" was also a correct answer. When would you use this? Or is it just correct either way?

Just now seeing your reply - thank you!! I gave you a lingot to make up for missing your response!
Me too, I need another ticket (for my sister) for Enrique Iglesias' concert on November 6th in Sofia, Bulgaria. My love Enrique!!! Anyone who is a fan of his here? Or just me?
It's the difference between masculine and feminine gender.
Most words that end in "o" are masculine, and most words that end in "a" are feminine.
There are exceptions, but this rule works for this question.
You use "un" with masculine nouns (usually ending in "o") and "una" with feminine nouns (usually ending in "a").

Did you use google translate...? If so the answer that you got is probably not correct.
that's not entirely correct. you could use either and they would understand you.
@johntcampbell Yes, because your answer is supposed to be English, and since the right answer isn't in Spanish, so isn't the correction.
the correction does not go to the bottom of the page, it goes to discuss to get the correction, this needs to be corrected or else
