by is better, but "on a" should also be accepted

Also, ship = boat for all these sentences. This lesson is a nightmare to complete.

They have slowly begun to accept "boat" in a few of these sentences now. I agree with you on the nightmare bit.

official answer 'The one boy travels on a boat, the other one on plane.' sounds quite weird

Why is it fiú and not fiúk I thought it would be "one of the boys" and this seems like "one of the boy"

Ok, here Hungarian is probably more logical than English. ' I see three cars' In Hungarian the multiple is already in the number 3 as it would be with many cars 'sok autó'

A literal translation of the English example sentence: A fiúk egyike hajón utazott, a másika pedig repülőn.

There are 2 versions of the English term 'one of the boys' in Hungarian. (1) a fiúk egyike; (2) az egyik fiú. (1)-phrase is a possessive structure, (2)-phrase is an adjective structure.

I do not have a typo and Duo needs to check the previous page. My answer, which was accepted, was "One of the boys travels on a ship and the other on an aeroplane." Duo says this contains a typo and then says "One of the boys travels on a ship and the other one on aeroplane." It's nice to see the British English version of aeroplane but you can quickly see that what has been written isn't correct.
