Hola Tonya

In the lesson we explain that "most" adjectives that end in -l or -z have the same form for masculine and feminine. We also give two exceptions for you to consider as they are two common adjectives (español and andaluz). 

We wouldn't include in the tests any other exception apart from those. That would be unfair. 

Hope this helps.

There is a test question with Fugaz and the correct feminine version is give as fuga, so there other exceptions with z. and l adjectives that are in the tests.
