Why is gagner wrong

Tu ________ le premier prix avec ton costume de Jack Sparrow.

What is wrong with "as gagné" rather than "as eu"?

The lesson is specifically about conjugating avoir in the passé composé. Your suggested alternative -- although correct -- defeats the purpose of the lesson.

Bonjour Mark !

First of all, "gagner" would be a perfectly valid option in this context :)
However, here we wanted to test "avoir" specifically, and upon review, our hint wasn't precise enough. Thanks to you, the question has now been updated accordingly.

Merci encore et bonne journée !
