i thought та and і were interchangeable?
I believe «освіта та студенти» works here too, and should be accepted. If it's not accepted, then it's a bug.
They are interchangeable. Sometimes they use 'та' if a word before it ends with a vowel and the one after starts with a consonant so that it sounds more melodically. It definitely should be accepted. I'd report it.
This sentence doesn't sound a bit...weird ?!?
It is not a full sentence, just a piece of a complete thought.
