Lectio is a lesson. Chapter is capitulum.

I think that in classical Latin, caput would be more proper for chapter than capitulum.

Ita. Capitulum is Late Latin. Caput, capitis is CL. Both can and should be accepted.

"Lectionem lego" should be rejected as an incorrect answer.

Interesting, can you explain? I think of Latin as a pro-drop language and have been using it to that effect here, but there is just so much grammar going on I am unaware of.

Am I correct in thinking that a capitulum is a small caput?...

Yes, true. Chapter = capitulum.

Makes sense: Lectionary (a collection of lessons for church services), lectern (from whence lessons are delivered)....
