Hello, why is vrai (vrai désastre) before the noun when the test calls for the disaster to be real?

 For "real disaster", shouldn't it be behind the noun?

If you wanted to say that it was "truly a disaster" or a "veritable disaster", you would say un vrai désastre. Un désastre vrai would be a true disaster as opposed to a false disaster. That doesn't make all that much sense here.
