I think the sentence is correct, the يا is used to place the name at the end of the sentence as a way of getting the person's attention, indicating that you are addressing them. Kind of like some use hey, as in The weather is nice, hey dad.

Here in the forum it's fine, but in the exercise the order is wrong, like there is a bug. I should have reported it

What you said is correct. The order is mixed up in the exercise.
