Shouldn't "to eat" be acceptable at the end of the sentence as well?

I have suggested “does she want lamb or beef”. I think in English usage the “to eat” is understood.

I put "does she want to eat goat or beef?" but it was rejected. Reported. Google says that goat meat is 山羊肉, but I've not seen that on a menu.

We keep getting listening exercises where we're supposed to read Duolingo's mind and write the correct one of 他 or 她. At least the French team corrects such things eventually when they're reported in one of several not-quite-correct ways. I don't know how to get these things corrected here, because I don't think any of them have gotten corrected.

Actually I had a few emails saying that such answers I have suggested are now accepted. So, do keep clicking the “my answer was correct” button.
