surely it can't be "not "? There isn't or no sound more correct in english

From what I've seen so far, the official "correct" English translation for the course never includes contractions. But usually the contractions are acceptable as an alternate answer.

"Isn't" is the contraction for "is not", though. So either one is correct, although the contraction is usual, and much more natural.

Agree, must be no instead od not?
