"female artists" might be a literal translation but you' never actually say that. PC version would be "Peter plays the violin amongst the artists". If you wanted to stress the mix of sexes possibly - "Peter plays the violin amongst the male and female artists" but more likely "Peter plays the violin amongst the artists - who included both men and women".

Fully agree. It's a very awkward translation

Nothing, it should be accepted.

Both "among" and "amongst" should be accepted here of course, but unfortunately are still not. We can only keep reporting and hoping

"peter plays the violin among artists and female artists". Duo is telling me that this is an error because it should be "peter plays the violin among artists and female artists". Really? I understand there is "a", but isn't it the same in english?

There is no point in classifiying the female artists separately. Not even Hungarians would say that sentence

Duolingo must re-phrase both sentences, English and Hungarian
