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

"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
