I tried a word ' 'ekahi ', it wasn't correct. I need to feel the difference between those two designations of 'number one'. Could anybody help me with this issue?

ʻekahi is the numeral or a count number (1, 2, 3...) hoʻokahi is an amount number that tells how many of something (1 girl)

Other amount numbers: ʻaʻohe (instead of ʻole), and he + 10-99 for all two-digit numbers

(possible question) ʻEhia kaikamahine nuha ma ka pā pāʻani? = How many stubborn girls are on the playground?

Aia hoʻokahi kaikamahine nuha ma ka pā pāʻani. = There is one stubborn girl on the playground.

A recent sentence "There are ten black dogs on the playground" did not require "aia" although it was listed as another correct translation. This sentence requires "aia". I donʻt understand the difference.

I noticed that too. I put this and it was marked wrong: Ho'okahi kaikamahine nuha ma ka pā pā'ani. Pepeke he'o doesn't require "aia". There is an example on pg 17 NKE book2 c2012 "There are ten black dogs on the playground" is also pepeke he'o but it is recognized by the key. The lack of recognition of the he'o for the kaikamahine nuha sentence must be an oversight. I flagged it.

ʻAe, this should have been accepted previously, but I had missed adding "ma", and only "i ka pā pāʻani" was being accepted. "Ho'okahi kaikamahine nuha ma ka pā pā'ani" is in the system now.
