I used niña as well and it was marked correct; are you sure you didn't have an error elsewhere in the sentence?

Same. Maybe 19 is too old to be a niña?

This should not be "girl." She is an adult.

Why 'tiene' and not 'esa'. She IS 19. One can't HAVE time. Even if tiene is accepted, wouldn't esa at least make sense? (Esa chica esta decinueve años)?

On the mujer vs. chica comments, while mujer is technically correct, it is also common to hear 'girl' for women under the age of 20, or even 30; depending on the speakers age and how young she looks.

Many juniors sections use odd numbered sizes to avoid confusion with women's sizes. The cut is different.
