translation of on

In lesson 2 of 10 in A1, on the quiz I was marked as incorrect when I included "He was not..."  as a translation for "On..."  They said that "we" and "you" were acceptable translations, but "he" was not.  I do not understand why not.    I watched the video & read the lesson, but it did not answer my question.

"He was not..." cannot be a translation of on, since, as you point out on cannot mean "he".

If that doesn't answer your question, maybe include the full sentence you feel you were graded wrongly.
