Why not BONNE idée?

Why isn’t “Quelle  une bonne idée” an acceptable answer as it is the most literal translation?

Hi Betsy, 

Quelle bonne idée!

(*note no ‘une’ )

would be correct for 

What a good idea!

The English was

What a great idea! 

Hope this helps!

I would have written "Quelle bonne idée !" as it is more commonly used and with an exclamation conveys all the meaning of 'what a great idea' as used in English. There are options to use 'super' or 'géniale'.
