Is there not supposed to be a space between "and" and the word that follows? I was marked down for having an extra space.

Yes, the conjunction "و" (most commonly "and") is always connected to the following word.

the audio for the Arabic character 'wa' is broken in this exercise, I understand that this Single Character alone is not the correct answer however shouldn't the audio be working?

In the audio, Rosa sounds like Rosen to me.

I hear that too, but I think it is just bad audio clipping, the same problem that screws up most of the recordings of " وَ" The " ا" sound is clipped off, making it sound like a glottal stop ending. Also, unless " ا" changes pronunciation depending on context, this is more like "Rooseh" than "Rosa". They are trying to find simple names English speakers would know as examples, but they don't totally match. Even more confusing is that Rosa is more a Latina name than an English one and would be more like "روـسـا" (English "S" sound, not "z" sound)
