Both ze and zij are accepted everywhere in the course. Only in type what you hear exercises you have to enter the exact word that was said.

Both ze and zij are accepted in all possible answers and all combinations in this sentence, you probably made another mistake as well.

Can I put the word "heeft" at the end like it is done in german? "Ze drinkt water want ze durst heeft" sounds right to me, too.

If you use omdat to link the two parts of the sentence the heeft would be at the end. Ze drinkt water omdat ze dorst heeft. The difference being that want is a "coordinating conjunction" like en and maar, while omdat is a "subordinating conjunction". The following explains the use of want/omdat some more: www.dutchgrammar.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1578

why is "zij" wrong when it says she? Why ze and why not zij for she?
