I am still learning and wondered this, too. Here is one resource that helps a little to better understand the minor differences: https://chinese.yabla.com/chinese-english-pinyin-dictionary.php?define=%E5%81%9A+%E5%B9%B2
This answer appears totally wrong because 想干 means more 'want to do', not 'like to do'.
Surprisingly it will not take the answer:
What do you want to do tomorrow evening?
Doulingo has the potential to be a great practice method but unfortunately this course, because of the lack of variety of acceptable English answers, it becomes painful non-learning where the best option is to remember answers by rote if you want to get them right. That does not encourage thinking but a more parrot-like response.
You are right. There are often no tenses in Chinese but sometimes, you can infer from the context. Like in this exercise, 明天晚上 implies future.
Examples of some useful words which help you identify the tenses:
了 (le0) / 过 (guo4) indicates the completion of an action and is associated with past or perfect tense
正(zheng4) / 正在 (zheng4zai4) indicates the continuation of an action and is associated with present or continuous tense.
