Why is incorrect “Aia kona huaka’i ma ka Pō’ahia?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RonRGB

DAY

Aia kona huaka’i ma ka Pō’ahia? = Her trip is on what DAY?"

(possible answer) Aia kona haukaʻi ma ka Pōʻaono. = Her trip is on Saturday. "

DATE

Aia kona huakaʻi ma ka lā ʻehia? = Her trip is on what DATE?"

(possible answer) Aia kona huakaʻi ma ka lā ʻeiwa o Ianuali. = Her trip is on January ninth.

"Pō’ahia" is asking for the day of the week. When we say, "what date", we usually want to know month and day, not day of the week. If the English had said, "Her trip is on what day?", then it would not have been clear if it was asking for day of the month OR day of the week and then both answers would have been accepted.

This whole set of 'date' prompts is frustrating. It needs more precise scaffolding to facilitate correct responses

The correction says mo, not ma.

RE: A class or O class Answered kana huaka'i and was wrong. I thought huaka'i is (A) class therefor Her=K(o)na ---> change to K(a)na

well, that we haven't learned anything about that in Duolingo yet is probably the first reason, but what little I know about kino o vs kino a is that kino o applies to "transportation," which would sort of apply to a trip. But I'm just guessing.

How did you determine huaka'i is A class or O class? I looked on nupepa.org and found examples of both.
