Would this be acceptable: "Ĉu vi povas respondi al la letero?"

Thank you! Why is "Ĉu vi povas respondi al letero?" not correct? Am I just mixing up with Spanish (a la = "al")?

That would be "to a letter", not "to the letter"

Ah... So without the "povas" it would be "are you responding to the letter?", not "can you?"

I think that "are you responding to the letter?" would be: "Cxu vi respondas la leteron?". Please correct me if I am wrong.

Why isn't "Cxu vi povas respondi al la leteron?" accepted?

I got a question right next to this that said the EXACT SAME THING, and it counted me wrong for answering this way. It told me the answer was "Ĉu vi povas respondi al la letero?"
