Question Alternate angles

In a recent maths test I answered a question, which I consider correct. As you will see on the attachment, the question does not state internal or external alternate angles. It only asks for alternate angles, which I believe covers both.

As you will see, I answered A and H to be alternate angles, as well as C and F, D and E.

My teacher marked me down on A and H as she stated that the question does not ask for exterior alternate angles. I can her point of view, but, the question also does not ask for interior alternate angles.

This does not seem like a big problem, but I would like to know if I should assume that it only regards interior alternate angles unless stated otherwise for future tests/ exams.

Any thoughts much appreciated.
