The question asked: "Couvrez-vous la tete!" Write "Cover it".
I answered "Couvrez-la". It wanted "Couvrez-la-vous".
Can you explain why the Kwiziq answer is correct. I could see it if the vous was an indirect object but it does not seem to be. For this reason it is not similar to any of the examples in the lesson.
Is it because "la" refers not just to "the head" but "your head", i.e. "the head of you"
This relates to:Using double object pronouns in affirmative commands (L'Impératif) -

It is because the verb 'se couvrir la tête ' is a reflexive verb.
Hope this helps!
