The particle האם is always optional. It is used, in more formal settings, to introduce a yes/no question.
As I said, it is always optional, but some sentences in this course require them or don't allow האם simply because the other option was not input into the database. The problem is remembering which sentences require it and which don't.

Boy = yeled ילד
From the Duolingo tips and notes; אֶת The Hebrew direct object is only strictly direct when it is indefinite, as in:
take a chair - קַח כִּיסֵא take meat - קַח בָּשָׂר When definite (eg הַכִּיסֵא 'the chair'), it is generally introduced by the special preposition אֶת .
This is known as the direct object marker. By definition we mean: a. a noun with הַ b. a name c. a definite pronoun
