spelling?

I believe mercado (mecado) is spelled wrong in this example. 

Si Amalia va al mecado, comprará pescado fresco.If Amalia goes to the market, she will buy fresh fish.

Hola Papi

It says "mercado" which is the correct spelling for market in Spanish.

There are two examples. One of the examples has the correct spelling, mercado.  I believe I have explained one of the two examples poorly. I agree with you that the correct spelling is mercado.  However, the spelling in one of the examples is mis-spelled as mecado.

Papi, 

you are right. I didn't realise there were two similar examples.

Both are correct now.

Gracias

I believe that there is a degree of ambiguity in this question.  Just suppose that the student is an average student and lazy, there is a high probability that the student will fail,  unless he/she starts to work much harder.  Given that condition, wouldn't the subjunctive be appropriate?  I deliberately submitted two correct answers and a wrond answer. (Subjunctive) to make the point.
