I swear to god this tree is a sick experiment. Right in the notes section of THIS VERY LESSON it says 的 is optional with familial relationships... then I proceed to get three questions wrong for not including it.

It should be acceptable to say "...住北京". The "在" isn't necessary. Please correct this.
