Saluton, amikoj!

I've a question about the exercises on 5/3 & 5/4 of the Nakamura course. In these exercises, we're provided the example:

ŝi + lito
Tio estas ŝia lito.

However, forming sentences in the same construction (ŝi + ĉambro -> Tio estas ŝia ĉambro) is marked incorrect. I've also noticed that adding the 'x' doesn't also automatically change the letters to their correct form.

Am I completely misunderstanding this exercise or is there something wrong?

I have the same answer (Tio estas ŝia ĉambro), and it's marked correct.
About diacritics: there a button in the toolbar on top, which turns the automatic change on or off (or Alt+2).

(By the way, thanks for adding me to your friends. At first I've confused the name and the location.)

Thank you for the reply! I do not get the correct response on any of them across either exercise! I will be enabling that- it might be easier to just enable the Esperanto keyboard since I'm on linux. It seems that letters are working correctly for me now so I will be trying the lesson again. Thank you for your help, friend!

I may have spoken too soon. Here is a screenshot of my responses. Can anyone shed some light on what I may be doing incorrectly?


Dankon, amikoj.

Lernu is sometimes a nitpicker. Are you sure that there is no extra space in your answer?

Good idea! I have just checked and there is no extra space before nor after the answers. I did notice that I didn't include final punctuation (the period) and after adding this my answers are marked correct.

Multe dankon, DNA2 kaj Metsis!
