Shouldn't "Why is that large rock over there?" be accepted?

Are far as I am aware, and from what all other teachers have taught me so far. "kivi" is more like stone than rock? Whenever someone has translated this word to me in the past they have said stone and not rock, so not being able to translate this as stone is confusing.

Kivi can be either. I have added it as a possible translation for this sentence.
