"Zien jullie" and "horen jullie" should also work, but it doesn't

Jullie is accepted. If it happens again please take a screenshot and post it here.

I wrote it as "Zien jullie de vogels of horen jullie hen?" Maybe the "hen" alternative was not registered for the question, but it should also be right. I'll take a screenshot if I face it again

Hen can only refer to people.

I put 'ziet u de vogels of hoort u hun', which was also marked wrong in favour of the 'je' version but I don't know how to post a screenshot.

Thanks but the point was it put the je form in the correct answer, following on from the above point about jullie not being accepted. I'll try the u form with ze next time and see what happens

So today I tried it again and if you get it correct with the u form then it says it's correct but if you get it wrong it uses the je form in the 'correct' answer so it looks like you got the whole sentence wrong; it doesn't just highlight the wrong word like it used to.
