shut and closed are synonyms, but shut is not accepted as a translation


What is the difference between tertutup and ditutup?


Here is the note on this lesson from Duolingo desktop version:

Ter- prefix The ter- prefix marks a passive verb, almost like the di- prefix. However, ter- is different in that it is used in situations where the verb is done spontaneously (Dia tersenyum), unexpectedly (Adik terjatuh), or denoting the state of an object (Suratnya sudah terkirim). Example: Botol ini diisi dengan teh [oleh Tini) = This bottle is filled with tea (by Tini). Botol ini terisi teh = This bottle is filled with tea.


so .. if it is spontaneously ...would a better translation be "the door closed" as apposed to the door is closed.
