Use this one:
"I love cold season more than hot season"
Took me multiple tries of changing around the wording. This is the only one they seem to accept :-/
In the meantime, I've kept reporting and hoping that we will see some fixes soon
Danged if I do, danged if I don't. This time I actually copied in the "correct" answer with the articles "the" in it and it returned a correct answer without! Reported, but this might give them a little insight into what's causing the problem.
So how to get the right answer here? Both "I like cold season more than hot season" and "I like the cold season more than the hot season" are marked wrong, and 'corrected' by the other.
"I prefer summer to winter"?
