Can anyone explain why acceptable answers for "your lunch hour" are "su hora DEL almuerzo" or "tu hora DE almuerzo" but my answer of "tu hora DEL almuerzo" was marked wrong?

It should be:

"Tu (tĂș [second singular person{Informal}]) hora DEL almuerzo" or

"Su (usted [second singular person{Formal}]) hora DEL almuerzo" also this one apply to 3 singular (she, he and it)

"Tu hora DE almuerzo" is WRONG, maybe "Tu hora de comer" would be fine.

The lunch "El almuerzo", has a masculine voice.

Hora de el almuerzo (de + el = del) = Hora del almuerzo .

That's why I couldn't figure out why my answer of "tu hora del almuerzo" was marked wrong and one of their "correct" answers was "tu hora de almuerzo" - I accepted it at the time as I 'm still learning but realize now I should have made a note to the powers that be and been more sure of myself in knowing that de + el is del and therefore should have been accepted. Thanks for confirming my thoughts.
