Maybe I am missing something but I don't see anything wrong offhand with the sentence either. Can you post the entire question? Maybe you had a typo? -- Chris (not a native speaker).

I agree. I had the same answer as Lycka and it was marked incorrect.

Question: Vous ___ arriver d'ici là (You will have been able to get there by then)

My answer: aurez pu y

Kwiziq answer: aurez pu

But the Kwiziq answer does not translate the word "there". The word "là" is part of the idiom for "by then".

The Kwiziq answer means : You will have been able to arrive by then.
