I had to do this one 10 times, If it say "thirty" then it should accept שלושים, also it should accept מתשע

ושלושים

משרדו של ראש הממשלה פתוח מתשע עד ארבע וחצי.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ItaiHadas

The hour ארבע ושלושים is not too common but still should be accepted.

"משרד ראש הממשלה פתוח משעה תשע עד אחד וחצי " The correct answer in the prior sentece

Did you change the closing time (which was 4:30 in the original question) to 1:30 accidentally, or are you making fun of Israeli government offices and saying they close up shop long before the posted hours?

The sentence as it is now מִשְׂרַד רֹאשׁ הַמֶּמְשָׁלָה פָּתוּחַ תֵּשַׁע עַד אַרְבַּע וָחֵצִי

and corrected to be better from comments above to include "from" (מ) מִשְׂרַד רֹאשׁ הַמֶּמְשָׁלָה פָּתוּחַ מִתֵּשַׁע עַד אַרְבַּע וָחֵצִי
