If 'mad' is an en word, why is the correct answer here 'DET samme mad'?

@Regrets, apparently the maximum amount of replies per one comment has been reached, since I cannot directly reply to your last post. Just wanted to say tak for taking the time to ponder all this :). I've also noticed that many sentences have this structure: "Det er en kat", but I suppose that is correct, when thought of as an answer to a question like 'Hvad er det?'.

Agree. This must be wrong. Det er samme mad, yes that is possible to say. But not Det samme mad.

mad is an -en word (Maden = the food), so unless I am mistaken, this translation is grammatically incorrect. I really do think it is supposed to be "Den samme mad."

En mad - maden, derfor den samme mad

So am I correct in thinking that duolingo has this wrong and "den" is the correct answer

Ja, det er korrekt. There is no 'madet' or 'et mad' in danish.

I agree with the comments above, it should be "Den samme mad".
