Can't you ask her?

If she is serious about learning photography and wants to take a class, she may need a certain lens for the class, probably a prime. She may even need a film camera. If she is doing this for fun, she may very well want a zoom. If she doesn't know the difference, explaining basic things like this may be a good thing to do before buying her a camera. She is an adult. Let her decide.
