dem Jungs, den Jungs

Can someone clearly explain why "With the boys?" is translated "Mit dem Jungs?" and "No, not with the boys." is translated "Nein, nicht mit den Jungs." ? The "clarification comment" said the second Jungs was unidentified, but "the" was in the English sentence.

"With the boys" is "Mit den Jungs". If duolingo accepts 'Mit dem Jungs', it's an error.
