What's the point of the hints if they have nothing to do with the accepted answer?

Or, 'je me retourne', right?

Je suis d'accord avec cela, mais . . . . marked incorrect.

"I lost a thing" would be better rendered as "I lost something"

This first part is not idiomatic in English so it's hard to translate, and the second part requires an idiomatic clause in French!!

I just put what Duo wanted, and I'm moving on.
