I guess "Elnézést, magak helyiek?" should also be accepted. (You'd use the informal if you were addressing children, or if you were a young-ish person addressing similar aged people; but otherwise you'd want the formal.)
Except the correct form is "maguk". And a bit more polite is the "önök" form.
So, "Elnézést": is it el-néz-ést, i.e., look away with some suffix we didn't learn yet at this point?
Elnézés + t (accusative) - see https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/40490546
