The word order "אני קורא ספר לעתים קרובות לפני שאני ישן" was marked wrong. Seems rather inflexible to me, perhaps too much?

Can you say ... לעתים קרובות אני קורא?

THat's what I tried too -- I'm pretty sure it's right but they marked it wrong.

Why would the 2 right answers include לעתים and לעיתים ... Two different spellings so I figured one was a trick. Is this a typo?

No, two possible ways to spell this word when writing without nikud. It's pretty much a personal preference.
