    Could you also say эти коты, or would that not count?

      It's definitely correct too. If Duolingo doesn't accept it, I believe it should be reported.

      Ok :D And I didn't even submit it as an answer, I was just wondering about the difference.

      when is it и or ы at the end? Like кошки and планы?

      After к its always и. Why ы after н I dont know, but its easier to say for me. Also мужчины.

      Try saying that word aloud both ways.

      мужчины v мужчини

      планы v плани

      I hope it will help.

        After н, both ы and и are possible.

        When the stem (the part of the word to which endings are attached) ends in hard -н, the ending is ны: сло́н ‘elephant’ — слоны́ ‘elephants’.

        When the stem ends in soft -нь, the ending is ни: конь ‘horse’ — ко́ни ‘horses’.

        Could not be: these are cats?

          No, this would be «э́то ко́шки».
