Capital letter for "le téléphone"

Hello,

Could you confirm whether "Le téléphone" needs to start with a capital letter "L" as both "le téléphone" and "Le téléphone" were marked as being correct and I have seen other examples on different Apps where there isn't always a capital letter at the start of a sentence in French.

Hi Kelly, 

Yes, Le should start with a capital -L as it is at the beginning of a sentence.

However, we accept it with a small 'l' because we are not testing punctuation but the use of the definite article here.

Bonne Continuation !
