Am I wrong or should Seoul suburbs be accepted too?
Sort of. I'd never write "X's suburbs" rather than "the X suburbs." I'd say "the Seoul suburbs" is my preferred way compared to any other but it needs the definite article.
I think it should, which is why I was confused. I said "Seoul, or Seoul Suburbs?" and Duolingo marked me wrong when they said "The city of Seoul or Seoul's suburbs?" I am confused
"Seoul or Seoul's suburbs," is correct. 의 on Duolingo is mostly the possessive format- 's.
Seoul city or suburbs of seoul - not acceptable? 왜?
Because you didn't report it. :P
My answer is 'The Seoul city or suburbs of Seoul'. And it's accepted.
Whats the difference between 아니면 and 도는
아니면 literally means if not.
(What do you prefer)
서을시 아니면 서을 거의
Seoul's city, if not, seoul's suburbs?
= Seoul's city or Seoul's suburbs+
아니면 is almost same as 또는 i think you misspelled that
1)커피 또는 주스 주세요.
2)커피 아니면 주스 주세요.
It's the same but many Korean use 또는
서울市 아니면 서울의 郊外?
It is the same thing!
What is the same thing
How come it was not correct when I said "Seoul, or the suburbs of Seoul?" It is the same thing.
Because the course is made and maintained by overworked volunteers and they can't think of everything. It's up to us to suggest our correct answers that were marked wrong be added to the list of correct answers.

Is there a difference if there is a space between the city's name and 시? Both
서울시 and 뉴욕 시 were correct for me.
"seoul downtown or the suburbs of seoul " should be accepted
