Marking the right answers in multiple choice

To keep my skills golden, I always do the Beat-the-clock exercises in French, Italian and Swedish. Sometimes, I have to do a multiple choice question (Translate the English question, and there are three possibilities; more possibilities can be correct): if there are two correct answers (and I mark them both), it often happens that it is accompanied by the positive sound, and that I get a green bar and it says ''good'', but it doesn't count my point. If I go afterwards to the ''Review lesson'', it is red and thus fault. I got this some minutes ago: Exercise: Mark all correct translations: We drink yours.

Feedback: Your response: "Noi beviamo le tue." "Beviamo le tue."

Correct response: "Noi beviamo le tue."

I think this problem occurs in all these languages. As for Irish, I do not know, since I don't do the Beat-the-clock exercise yet in that language.

Another minor problem for French and Italian: I have the two Bonus Skills in these languages, both golden, but they never lose their golden color on my computer, to become purple again. Yet, on my phone, they become purple again really quickly. So it happens a lot that my Bonus Skills' color isn't the same on computer as on phone.

I have seen this issue in the Spanish course as well.

Good to know that I'm not the only one. Do you know if some moderator has already seen it, and if they're working at it?

I also have had this bug happen many times now. Would appreciate if this could be fixed. :)

I have the same problem - I mark the correct answer, get a green bar but when I review the lesson to see why I got so few points, it says that I marked all three answers, which is obviously not true.

Update: It happens in normal "without-the-clock" exercises, too!

    I just had the same problem with the multiple choice questions. I hope they fix it soon.

    I will post something on the stream of a the Duolingo Team. Since it's happening in many languages, it's a general problem and not a language-related one. Which team do you think is the most appropriate? https://www.duolingo.com/info I would think the engineers...

    This is happening to me as well and since yesterday it is worse because even if there is only one correct answer in the multiple choice questions, it doesn't count it and in the "Review" it says that I have chosen all the three answers!!!!

    It seems like it is (somehow) fixed now! I haven't seen any multiple choice questions since posting my comment above so I do not lose points because of them!

    When I do the multiple choice it tells me I'm wrong when I'm correct no matter what I choose and then I lose my health and have to buy into keep playing or practice to regain health. I've reported it and I've received no response from Duolingo. I've recommended the app to others and now wonder if I should have smh
