In many sentences with "dann", putting in "Then..." in the translation often causes it to be wrong. Is this just because of lack of Translations through Duolingo, or is it some reason in German?

Lack of translations, and the fact that "than" can be superfluous in many situations (similar to "like")

Why is "die" used for "they" here and not "sie"?
