The marking is incorrectly red-lining the 's' on " grands-" in < grands-parents >. This had occurred in another lesson previously as well and was subsequently reported to have been corrected.
The use of < l'a réussi > for "passed it" is also being red-lined incorrectly, as also recently noted by James. As < l'a obtenu > is not accepted either, this suggests only 1 correct way to say passed an exam in French.
