"China is 'a' country with the largest population" was marked wrong. Can anyone explain the rationale for this?

There is only one specified country with the world's “largest population,” isn't there? Doesn't really work in English in the indefinite.

Correct solution: China is the country with the largest population.

However, the word "largest" isn't available in the word list. The closest I could get using the words available to me was "China is the country with the most large population" (which sounds terrible and is obviously wrong). The three leftover words are "hindus", "sore", and "off". So I'm not sure what the correct solution for this should be.

Actually, the correct translation should say “biggest.” “Largest” is better applied to things where areas and volumes are concerned. Not 100% sure if using “large” in this context is entirely out of the question, but it sure sounds off though.

Hmmm...that's interesting.
The original translation was different (without the word "largest").
The original translation has been changed, but apparently the word tiles didn't change.
