Karina, when talking about week days in a specific context, the definite article is not used. That applies to the narrative in this exercise.  

The definite article is used with week days in a number of other circumstances however. 

See attached lesson and associated similar questions and discussion previously. 

If there has been a change to the expected responses 'accepted', presumably it was to enhance consistency with the usage as explained in the lesson.
