how come 个 is included after 每 when it's usually left out?

It's optional, you can keep it or omit it. But I myself will keep it.

I will keep it here to sound more natural. 个 is often omitted when 每 is before a monosyllable, but not so often in other cases.

Ya. 每天,每个日子,每周,每个星期,每年,每个年份。 But 每秒钟,每分钟,每小时/每个小时 Never heard 每个秒钟,每个分钟。

Correctness. It's omission is just standard when obvious or during casual conversation.

Why is "They are eating noodles every Sunday evening." wrong? Would present progressive need a word like "now" to indicate the time?

The continous form is used for describing an activity that is currently ongoing. In this case the activity is taking place repeatedly (every sunday evening).

That could be a correct English sentence if they didn't used to eat noodles every Sunday evening but now they are doing so.

"they eat noodles for dinner every Sunday" should also be accepted.

Yeah - I do have the same question - why is it not accepted "They eat noodles every sunday in the evening"? Possibly someone of native speakers here could explain it? Thx ☺️

"every Sunday evening" is right, but "every Sunday in the evening" is wrong.
