avoir + monté
The lesson says that "J'ai monté mon cheval" means "I mounted my horse" and that avoir + monté means "to mount something". In the test it asks what the meaning is of "'Lucas a monté la nouvelle armoire de sa soeur.'' I selected "Lucas got on his sister's new wardrobe" as one of the possible meanings (to me, "got on" means generally the same thing as "mounted", though "getting on" a wardrobe seems like an odd thing to say). Anyway, that answer was marked as incorrect. I don't understand why. Could you help?
This question relates to:French lesson "Monter can be used with avoir or être in Le Passé Composé... and changes meaning"

I have the same question as Gabhan. If " avoir monte les escaliers" means going up the stairs.. "avoir monte la armoire" should also mean going up the wardrobe (marked wrong in the quiz).
