"in" should be optional in the suggested answer

To me "in" just sounds plain wrong and should be "on".

The point is we should be learning Chinese, not quibbling about "in" or "on" in English! They are way too inflexible with "correct" answers.

我同意

“我赞成”,“同意” is used when permission is given.

I think "during" would be better than "in".

Or "What will you do on Mid-Autumn Festival evening"?

I used the same exact answer and it was rejected. Reported.

The exercise should also accept "On Mid-Autumn Festival night, what will you do?" Duolingo wants "the [sic] night of Mid-Autumn Festival what will you do?"

Shouldn't my answer also be acceptable? "what are you going to do on Mid-Autumn Festival evening"

That sounds fine to me, and certainly better than the one they give.

Night is identical to evening here

"What are you all doing on the night of the Mid-Autumn Festival" should be accepted

January 27, 2018

"What will you guys do for the Mid-Autumn Festival night?" was rejected.

As it should be!

This answer makes sense but it sounds very unnatural. Perhaps "what are you guys doing mid-autumn festival eve?" or "What are you guys going to do for mid-autumn festival in the evening?"

"Eve" is incorrect, as the evening of Mid-Autumn Festival is the actual evening of the event, not the night before.

"In the Mid-Autumn Festival evening" should also be accepted!
