dónde and donde in kwiz question

The kwiz question is: Cristina no sabe todavía ________ va a celebrar su cumpleaños.

The most import possibilities are dónde and donde.

If i look in the lesson: Difference between dónde and donde (with and without a written accent)

i see: if you can substitute it for "in what location", you can use dónde.

This answer was wrong, it should be donde. I don-t understand that, it seems to contradict the lesson.

Hola Hans

Sorry to hear you are a bit confused.

You need "dónde" here (with an accent) as you could say: "Cristina doesn't know yet in what location she is going to celebrate her birthday."

I hope this helps.

Saludos

Inma

You need "dónde" here (with an accent) as you could say: "Cristina doesn't know yet in what location she is going to celebrate her birthday."

But you could also say:  " To which location" as in to the seaside or to Madrid.  In which case, would adónde also be correct?

Another question qhich has donde without accent as correct seems to contradict the answer given by quizik fort the above question.
