This is an interesting one. Coat is correct in classical arabic. Usually we say Kaboot. For a begineers course in Arabic, isn't it better to teach the student the more commonly used word. The only caveat is if there are other words than Kaboot to refer to a coat. In Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Egypt it would be understood. I'm not sure about other countries.

I put ليس عندي معطف and was told the solution was ليس عندي قبعة ; this is wrong.

Same here. I reported it. Odd, though, that at the top of this page, it shows the right answer even though the exercise page has it wrong.

When do you use ليس and when لست?
