Could it also be "When do they eat"?

No, as the Sie is capitalised, it is the polite form.

It's always Sie - (formal) You sie - they

Yes if you are listening to the audio only.

  • Wann essen sie? ("When do they eat?")
  • Wann essen Sie? ("When do you eat?")

Why did it say I'm correct if I chose "sie" and not "Sie"?

Duolingo ignores punctuation and capitalization. You need to know on your own.

This is really bad. "wann essen sie?" teaches me incorrect German for Sie. This should not be happening.
