I placed 是 after 姐姐 and got wrong answer. I still want to know when to omit 是 in sentences.

我姐姐是二十四岁 what's wrong with this? Is not saying 的 here and saying 是 wrong? 是 feels a bit out of place.

”岁“ I find is most often used for very young people. I think “年多” is actually more accurate in this case.

What's with the period being required? That never happened in Duolingo before. Particularly when it is not offered as a selection!
