The article indicated by the red arrow shouldn’t be allowed, right? But a match occurs, because the extent of the 3-word span that matched is shown by the blue rectangle. The errant article was outside of the 3-word context, and so wasn’t considered as disqualifying. The noun and adjective filled in the entire 3-word span (because of an extra word intruding between them); since they both exist inside the 3-word span in blue and the article is not, this context passes as a match for the query.
