Select the correct kanji for もん question where 門 and 問 are both offered as choices

In Directions 2, I came across this question where there are two possible correct answers and 問 is marked as wrong.

Since we can't report this kind of error with the report options, is it best to post here, post in the troubleshooting forum, or submit a bug report?

I don't suppose it's within your power to fix the same problem in the Japanese-from-Chinese course that I pointed out a few weeks ago in this post? No matter if not.

I'm not a contributor on that course, sorry. I don't even speak any dialect of Chinese! :D

There are some cases "聞" is also read "もん."

聴聞/ちょうもん

前代未聞/ぜんだいみもん

I am sorry for saying such a thing.

Good point!

The person who input the exercise probably didn't think about all the different possible readings for all the characters. :3
