I was marked wrong for writing 'Raj eats banana'; the suggested correction was 'Raj eats A banana' even though 〈 एक 〉 is not included. It's now suggesting 'THE banana' too... Which is correct?

An article is required in English which is why you need to add one even when its not present in the Hindi statement. you can use either "a" or "the" for this statement

“A banana” and “the banana” are both correct because the sentence doesn’t specify which banana.

Native speakers will simply understand it as, 'Raj eats bananas'.

I answered Raj eats a banana and was marked incorrect... it suggested Raj eats THE banana.

“Raj eats banana” would be incorrect in any circumstance.

That's not true. There are instances where you could be talking about the meat of the banana rather than the entire fruit.

Person 1: "Would Raj like a peanut butter and banana sandwich?"

Person 2: "Probably. Rob eats banana with everything."

राज केला खाता है अकेला or अकेला राज केला खाता है or राज अकेला केला खाता है or राज केला अकेला खाता है -- Only Raj eats the/a banana !

अकेला means alone, it's a nice play on sounds (a kelaa), but the word you should be using is सिर्फ़. + Positioning is relevant in a Hindi sentence, so it would mean that he only eats bananas when positioned in front of केला.
