Is this an alternative structure? "tha seo t-òrd trom"

So why is aotrom not correct? Hammers can be light, you have big hammers and small hammers so: one could be heavy but this one is light.

I'm not sure I understand. The sentence is asking for the English translation of "tha an t-òrd seo trom".

The OP might be referring to a fill-in-the-blank version of the question that I found odd too - "tha an t-òrd seo ........" where both trom and aotrom were options available from the tiles.

Indeed. I was given four options and both trom and aotrom were listed as an option.

Ahhhh gotcha. That shouldn't have happened so I've removed it. Thank you!

This exercise was audio. I did not hear the speaker say "an" and I listened more than once. So I chose 'tha t-ord seo trom.' What was really weird is that the Duolingo message said "Correct!" but it was in red and marked me wrong. If I missed hearing the "an" -- OK, mark me wrong, but don't tell me I'm correct AND mark me wrong! That's just messing with my mind, LOL!
