does anyone know why 'ini pertanyaan utama' is incorrect here? or what is the function of the -nya suffix to the adjective in the correct answer: 'ini pertanyaan utamanya'?

Without "Yang", the answer is correct too, it's optional

As for the "nya" it's one of the translation for the word "the"

Without yang it would translate as, this main question ... as opposed to that main question ... which is not the same as identifying 'the' main question.
