Hi Margaret, the lesson is about forming adverbs. The answer was looking for this. In "fluent Spanish", "fluent" is an adjective, not an adverb. It isn't wrong but it isn't what they were looking for.

My problem is taking a test w/o knowing what the lesson it was based on. Fortunately, I know when to ignore these issues.
