  • Лампа is a feminine noun with a very much non-zero ending.

  • It's more conventional, in Russian, to list accusative between dative and instrumental.

  • An actual zero-ending noun (like журнал, which you used in your previous question) would be declined on its own quite independently of the adjective: старый журнал, старого журнала, старому журналу, etc. The adjective, on the other hand, inherits the noun's animacy category, and adjusts its accusative form accordingly.

  • You are correct that the order is different to what listed, In my region they tend to do it in a different order where I got a little confused. Sorry about that. Thanks for the clarification. Большóе спасибо.
