How does Duolingo just magically expect us to know that we don't need againn here, OR that orainn means on? When I clicked to see the translation for on it only said ar or ar siul. This app isn't teaching me anything

I must admit this is beyond my understanding here. Where is "our" reflected here?

Ár is “our”.

To cover the possession element of "have" I added ' againn' but I was apparently wrong.

ár (our) covers the possessive, 'orainn' is the on bit.
