Ankaŭ, like the "ne" in "ne estas", is sort of like a prefix in how it should be placed immediately before the word it is modifying, as opposed to the English convention of stapling it onto the end of the sentence.

But this is not a rule. It's a recommendation to avid misunderstandings, but you can put it another place. Look: http://bertilow.com/pmeg/gramatiko/e-vortecaj_vortetoj/ceteraj/ankau.html#i-vb4

Can someone explain all the differences between vivas and loĝas? Is it that vivas is like to be alive and loĝas is more like to reside

Yes, it is. Vivi is to be alive. For humans hat is more than dwelling only. (to dwell = loĝi) And not all life forms do dwell.

Many people use vivi for loĝi as totum pro parte, most likely according to their native languages.

I wrote "Plants are alive," but that was apparently incorrect, despite "is alive" being listed as a possible translation for "vivas." Is it just Duolingo being rigid, or am I missing a distinction.
