Would "The big circle seems red" be acceptable?

It should be, but was just marked wrong for me. English can use "to be" after seems, but usually does not require it.

Wouldn't this translation be: "Ο μεγάλος κύκλος φαίνεται να είναι κόκκινος"?

I wrote ´the large circle looks red´ and was marked wrong both on ´large´ and on ´looks´, although both are correct.

Yes, it's one of the alternatives. Is that the word you typed in?

Yes, but there may have been a typo. When I type from my phone it gets creative sometimes.
