Hello,

But we can say ''painting'', Can't we?
I mean if it was included .. the options. While ''Paint'' was instead as a kind of trap.

We cannot use 'painting' in the test question.

You want to buy paint so that you can use it to change the colour of the walls.

Buying a painting will not help you change the colour of the walls themselves - it will only provide you with something to put on the wall!
