Duo does not count answers with incorrect capitalizations, punctuations or accents as incorrect. I've never seen a sentence rejected for an incorrect "H".

There may be another error but it is not the lack of the capital.

Next time send us a screenshot showing the exercise, your answer and the reply from the computer. It will help a lot.

Yes, the lower case Greek "η" is distinctive. I'm just wondering what the actual error was. We got a recent screenshot questioning the rejection of a sentence and noticed something the learner hadn't ..."the the.. " in the middle of the sentence where, of course, only one was needed. Our eyes do play tricks on us and tiny things can slip by.

the η was very clearly underlined. And the 'correct' version read : 'Η¨. I'll try to find it. I moved on with the 'required' answer so wasnt held up - just found it very odd.
