Mistakes in Translations

So I have a student working and she has gotten the sentence... They drink it. She needs to translate it into Spanish. She puts in Ellos la beben or ellos lo beben and it is wrong. The correct answer they give is always Ellas labeben and no where does it mention all females. Am I wrong in assuming that if it is a generic they it is Ellos? And the use of lo or la and it is always la...is it not masculine unless you know exactly what it is?
