Possible error: Comment s'est-elle trompee? (sorry I can't do the accent in this textbox)

The system says the above phrase translates to 'How did she get it wrong?' - but I couldn't work out where the 'it' is. I thought it might mean 'How did she go wrong?' then checked Google Translate, which confirmed my interpretation.

Could this please be checked? Thanks (loving the site by the way)

se tromper -- to get it wrong, to go wrong, to err

Those are all viable renditions of the French se tromper. You can't go word by word in that case.
