why erste and not ersten?

Erste has a singular object, ersten has a plural object.

Ok. Thanks!

The first plate: Der erste Teller. The first plates: Die ersten Teller.

After D or A singular also has -n:

Ich habe den ersten Teller. Ich esse aus dem ersten Teller.

The first dish. was marked wrong?

‘Teller’ can also mean “dish”. Report it.
