Should be "They work"


"Sie arbeiten" can be "they work" and the formal form of "you work" - like in "You work, Mr. Miller." or "You work, Mrs. and Mr. Miller."


This sentence uses Sie as the formal "you", a meaning that the course has not been introduced yet.

This is the work of a Pearson editor who used the word that the course internally marks as "they" and used it to mean "you".
