why is the answer "The girl is seeing the boys" wrong?

It shouldn't be. It is an awkward sentence, not to mention it may lead the reader to think the girl is dating several boys, but I believe it is grammatically correct.

Yes it is incorrect. I think it was Christian who gave this link http://esl.about.com/od/grammarintermediate/a/noncontinuous.htm previously which gives a very good explanation.
