Why feminine?

Question:

Queda muy ________ arroz, no podemos hacer la paella.

Answer: poca


I understand the explanation of when to use poco/poca/pocas/pocos but I don't understand why in this circumstance it is feminine, because I thought arroz is masculine. Is 'arroz' actually feminine, or is it because 'la paella' is feminine?

Hola Hayley,

I checked in the system and it is stating "poco" as the correct answer (not poca) 

Arroz is a masculine noun.

If it happens again could you send us a screen-shot please? 

Or maybe you misread it?

Saludos
