Saying "he now lives somewhere..." to me somewhat implies that he was living somewhere else before, so would it be correct to use теперь instead of сейчас?

Was going to ask the same thing, I believe so.

Can someone please tell me the difference between где-нибудь and где то

Где-то as somewhere is right but что-то as something is wrong according to this course. How are we supposed to detect patterns in the language and learn with this kind of inconsistency?

For the entire time, duo pushed author as "писатель". Автор? Серьезно? Duo really likes switching answers when convenient
