five straight mistakes in this duo sentence.

جوعان is correct but it's less used

جائع is more common

and yes the diacritics is almost incorrect for this sentence

I agree. I studied classical Arabic for some time (long ago) and we also got taught جوعان . I understand, that it's a bit weird to use it today :)
