Galling as it was, I eventually had to include the "up" in order to progress in the course

If you think something should be accepted that isn't, report it. "Wake up" sounds much more natural to me than any alternative, but apparently that's not universal among dialects of English. No need to insult people like me for whom that is the case.

Why is "They are waking up in the morning." not a possible translation?

It should be; report it

I am new here, can you tell me how I can report this?

When you get an answer wrong, there should be an option to send in a report, at the bottom of your screen. At least, that's how it is on the web version; I don't know if it's the same on mobile, as I don't use that.

So "asubuhi" by itself can just be used, there is no need for a word or element that means "in" or "during" or "at the time of"?

They wake in the morning should count the same as they awaken in the morning.

"up" is not necessary although it is often used, Up is less posh.

The "up" is not necessary
