"The intermediate school is upland of the high school."

Translation:Aia ke kula waena ma uka o ke kula kiʻekiʻe.

Why is "i uka" wrong, when in earlier exercises, it has been much more common that ma uka or mauka?


From what I've read, my understanding is that i is more closely associated with motion, while ma would be more common for stationary objects; since the school is clearly not moving, I think ma is preferred.


Thank you. I will try to recall kau a’o. Others mana’o suggest there is debate about this in the various dictionaries. If I recall.


I appreciate your insight.


Anyone else unable to see the question because thw answers cover it? And even if you scroll it's still covered?


Wow, I am seeing answers that don't match the box choices given; I have the same answer as stated above, and it didn't count it incorrect but as a "typo." It showed the word "mo," which is not even in a box choice nor in the answer given above! I will report it, but the report choices probably don't fit the problem, which is why I stated it here.
