Il y a mille kilos dans une tonne metrique - is this also correct?

That’s what I put, but it was not accepted. Reporting.

    I don't know if it's accepted by this exercise, but yes (provided you put an accent over the first e!), it's valid. Tons are metric by default in France so in most circumstances the adjective would be redundant.
