Why can't I put "Was machst du" instead of "macht ihr" here?

That would be a good translation as well.

And I think you used to be able to use it in this exercise.

But an editor for the Pearson course ( https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24066422 ) touched this sentence last, less than a week ago, and as far as I can see, the reports saying that Was machst du...? and Was machen Sie...? should be accepted are all younger than that; I presume that the Pearson editor removed those alternatives.

I've no idea why.
