"They open the gate."
Translation:Elas abrem o portão.
Yes. "Eles estão abrindo o portão = They are opening the gate" // "Eles abrem o portão = They open the gate"
Yep, duolingo is mixing progressive and simple present wrongly
How i am going to know that They means elas instead of eles? big confussion of Duolingo in this one.
i think they are accepting it now, but couple months back they were pushing more for elas (probably because eles is more generic, i'm not sure.)
Where is the "My answer should NOT have been accepted box", it accepted my incorrect abram :-)
