Do you mean that DL used qu' as the article for blanc/blanche?

Hi! I'm not sure what the issue you're facing is since I'm not studying French, but I'm not sure Troubleshooting is the right place for this question. I think a better place to ask this would be in the French for English speakers forum or, if it was in sentence you were taught, in the sentence discussion forum. You're likely to get a helpful answer that way :)

I found this twice in the app.where you are required to pair a French word with an English. There is no opportunity to pose a question at the time. It simply doesn't make any sense to me.

If you know what lesson the mistake was in, hunt down one the French moderators and ask them about it :) Find a current, active moderator for the French course here and write a message on their profile. Hope this helps!

If you're asking about wrong answers in the multiple choice questions, duo's algorithm for generating those is quite primitive, so many of them make no sense.

Thank you for taking the trouble to reply. I think it must be an error. I feel it it is too trivial to contact a moderator. Thanks anyway.

No language related question is too trivial! The French mods are very cordial and will be very happy to help you and look into it!
