Possible German translations for "Your shirts are black":
Deine Hemden sind schwarz - (I'm talking to one person who I'm familiar with)
Eure Hemden sind schwarz - (I'm talking to multiple people who I'm familiar with)
Ihre Hemden sind schwarz - (I'm talking to any number of people who I'm formal with)
Duolingo should accept all three German sentences as a translation from the English, because we don't know the context.
It could be. Deine for one person, eure for multiple. The english sentence doesn't clarify this context, so you may report it.
I think it is only like that if the color is right before the noun. Die hunde sind schwarz. Die schwarze hunde sind schnell.
It is "die schwarzen Hunde". But you are right. adjectives in the predicative position are not declined.
