This should say in the year eighteen ninety.

One thousand eight hundred ninety should be accepted with the words given. I was taught in elementary school not to use the word and in numbers.

she lived here in 1890 - apparently not correct. I certainly would not say 'in the year' as 1890 is self-evidently a year and it would therefore be tautology

Using "the year" should also be accepted though, as it is normal in older texts and literature.

It should be accepted, as a different question forces us to use "the year." Also, "the year" is used in English in older texts and literature.

In a question in the same lesson today, DUO said I had to put "the year" into the "correct" answer. How about a little consistency?
