No indication of "The"!?

Okay, regardless of the horrors visited on Syria and Damascus over recent years, cities, nature and islands are not 'pretty' in English - dresses, flowers, females, etc. - yes, but I think 'beautiful' or 'lovely' have been more appropriate in most cases so far.

If you type the English yourself, DL accepts "beautiful". I gather that in the multiple choice variant it only offers "pretty"?
