Problem with pictures

I'm losing hearts because of the pictures, since they do not ask for the article in front of the word.

Example: "Garden" Correct answer: "En hage"

while I feel that my answer "Hagen" is just as correct.

In the italian course (and others) we have to choose between articles to make it clear that you have to include them, maybe the norwegian course should do the same?

Are you sure that it didn't say 'a garden'? The correct translation for 'garden' would be just 'hage', but that's not what the exercise should be asking for regardless.

This is what we have on our end:

Not definitely certain. (It was the layout with three pictures and the line where you write, not the word with three different pictures to choose from). I might have read it a bit too fast for my own good :P

The article options (like in italian) would be nice anyway if that design is still being used.

    Hagen = The garden | En hage = A garden | Garden (alone) = Hage
