In French, there is no continuous tense (we will always say: "Je mange", either it is in general, or in a definite moment).
So, if the meaning of the sentence is "in general", then use the English present simple, for ex: "(In general) I eat rice."
If the meaning of the sentence is "in a definite moment", then use the English present continuous, for ex: "(Now) I am eating rice."
It can both include "some" or not depending upon the situation. Since duolingo isn't asking for certain situations both answers are correct but if it's not then report it. Also, there are times that you have to put an article whatsoever into a sentence even though it's not needed because the tense isn't complete if you do not include it and will lead into grammatical errors.
