I had not seen the word for rice with an "e" on the end yet....why does it have the "e" on this one.

It translates "of rice"; the genitive case

Could "amhain" be translated as "only" here, i.e. we have only one kilogram of rice"?

I put "we only have one kilogram of rice" and was marked wrong

That would be Níl ach cileagram amháin ríse againn. A teacher would want the closest literal translation.

why not "aon chileagram amháin"?

Perhaps the course creators didn’t anticipate it as another correct answer?
