Correct answers given as incorrect

I’m fed up of giving correct answer and having them marked wrong and losing a life, but then the correct answer provided is exactly the same as the answer I have just given! Does anybody else have this problem?  I’m thinking of packing Duolingo in. It’s so frustrating.

You can report missing correct answers. Can you post a screenshot of a case where you got an answer marked wrong but the correct answer was the same?

I've been seeing the same problem the last couple of days. Seems like some sort of gremlin. Cutting and pasting the suggested correct answer makes no difference. I tried adjusting the punctuation on one occasion which it then accepted, but it may have been a coincidence. EDIT: Just confirmed again that adding a full stop to the end of a sentence gets it accepted. I don't use punctuation in my answers (for speed) so this is annoying.

I have the exact same problem :

And just like you, it all started two or three days ago.
