It marks the answer as incorrect without including "هل" — which is right if speaking strictly Fus7a; but there should be a note about this if it's not clear whether the course is teaching strictly Fus7a or otherwise...

"It marks the answer as incorrect without including "هل" ":

This seems to be another inconsistency, since in the previous sentence "هل" was omitted.

Is "from the city of Damascus" just a slightly redundant way of saying "from Damascus", or is this important? I noticed that another sentence had only "from Alexandria" , no City Of.
