Help Interview Scheduling help!

so a certain program sent me dates regarding options for interview at their IM residency program. Problem is, they sent me a list of dates for prelim spot and diff list of dates for categorical track and asked me to select the appropriate date for which I applied.
I applied to both! but their invitation letter didnt specify for which one I am invited for....
i feel like a dumbo if i ask them that in a reply email.. any clues what to do??

ok, i think thats the only way to go about this now.
Thanks for the input... hopefully it works out.
and in regards to explaining myself... my only motive in doing that is cuz i thought that if i didn't get a categorical seat this year, I could use the prelim spot and gain experience to strengthen my application for next year. i don't know if that is a lame excuse though... :/
did i just unknowingly shoot myself in the foot? :/
