Trouble with correctly inputting...

Hi! New student, first time poster!

When I get the lesson page with 4 buttons, each with one word like "1 Il" "2 la" "3 l'" and "4 lo" it asks me to write something. I then type it in on the given line, and get "You used the wrong word," even if I gave the answer that they provide.

So, I am having an input problem. Am I supposed to click on the buttons? I switched from Firefox [had this problem there] to Chrome, and the problem got better for about 2 or 3 questions, then the problem returned. I have typed the answer on the line provided, which has a cursor, and still, the correct answer is marked wrong.

This is irritating, and seems like I might be missing something obvious.

Any help?

The four words are the definitive object and you need to select the correct one. Then you need to type the translation of the word (without a definite object) so the selected word AND the typed translation give you the translated answer.
