All of your choices are among the 32 possible sentences that are accepted. Please tell us which area you encountered this. There is one where things like this have appended and we are trying to get to the root of it. Was it in the tree, the listening, the strengthen skill, multiple choice etc ...? You'd be helping us if you could tell us.

Here are a few (others have "The lady..." or "The wife...".)

The woman who talks is tall. The woman who is talking is tall. The woman that talks is tall. The woman that is talking is tall. The woman that speaks is tall. The woman that is speaking is tall. The woman who speaks is tall. The woman who is speaking is tall.

Thanks for your reply. I came across it in the tree when I was working on Lesson 2 of Pronouns relative. It wasn't a listening or multiple choice question, I was just asked to translate the written sentence Η γυναίκα η οποία μιλάει είναι ψηλή. I hope this helps.

Thank you for your help. Now, we have to find out how to fix it. Until, these errors were in Strengthen skill but they seem to be branching out. Many thanks.
