Why is "pretty" suddenly discounted as being right for "jamiil" جَميل

why "pretty" is wrong ?

Along the same lines as the other comments, why is "beautiful lion" incorrect? Every other time i leave off "a," i get a nice little note in the green box, "also correct, a whatever..."

Same reason. Both are correct

Why is 1) جميل not equal to pretty but needs to be more specifically beautiful and 2) why has 'a' suddenly become mandatory?
