Translation:How many hours do you spend on the computer every day?
"How many hours are you on the computer every day" is also common English usage
Could this also be written 你每天用电脑几个小时？ Or does that mean something else
I like your sentence better if your sentence has the same meaning.
I couldn't understand the "几个小时电脑" (how many hour computer, literally) part.
I wrote, "How much time do you spend on the computer every day" and it was marked wrong. I expressed it that way because it had not yet been established that computer use exceeded a minimum of one hour. It's illogical and is begging the question.
每天 - everyday 天天 - daily Same meaning but I would say 天天 is more informal slightly
Daily is 天天. Its the same meaning but ill say the tone is slightly more informal for 天天
In not that interested in all the ways you can say it in English, I'm here to learn Chinese. I want to know if moving "用" to the end of the sentence would also be correct Chinese grammar, as with other sentences where the verb can be last?
Moving 用 to the end of the sentence does not work because it has an object (电脑), therefore it must precede the object.
"How many hours do you use a computer for each day?" Marked wrong. Sigh.

I have seen this question three times in a lesson without any mistake. Why does it repeat so much?
Duo often uses the same sentences in different modules that teach different things, such as listening, English -> Chinese, Chinese -> English, etc.
Sometimes you'll see it once English to Chinese, once Chinese to English, and once for audio.
Other times there's a glitch that can happen on any question of any course, not just this one
But the was really the same question from Chinese to English three times ..
It seems to translate to 'you spend a few hours a day computer' where does 'how many' and 'on the' appear in this Chinese sentence.?
几个 is the "how many" and as far as I know "on the" is just how we say it in English.

some of the word choices are hidden underneath the bottom strip where you click 'check' and 'continue'
"How many hours do you use on the computer every day" is also apparently incorrect.
"How many hours do you spend on the computer everyday?" should be accepted
I would change the word order to "How many hours do you use the computer daily?"
You do not "use" hours, you "spend" them doing something. You are using the computer, not the hours. Therefore you could say "how many hours do you use the computer every day".
I think " How long do you use the computer every day" should be acceptable.
"How many hours do you use the computer for every day? " should be accepted.
