It's more common to say "sleep IN a bed"

I agree... Thats what i wrote, and it was marked wrong.

"Os meninos dormem numa cama pequena" is also correct, isn't it?

É isso! Em + uma = numa

Linking them is not madatory. "Em uma" is more common in written language.

    I wrote the translation correctly as it appears here, but the lesson tells me it should be "The boys sleep on 1 little bed." The lesson should accept my translation. Please fix.
