on multiple choice, If the clue has the word "pen" and only one of the possible answers has the work "boligrafo" it is not much of a test

Before the upgrade, most often, the multiple choice problems didn't even apply to the lessons. So that is an improvement.

In case anyone is interested, "pluma" is the more common way to say "pen" in Mexico.

how about telling us WHY what we have chosen is incorrect. Ie i technically wrote the correct words but wrong usage. So we dont have to go to google and find out why the sentence is structured diferently.

Why didn't you ask about it here? There are advanced students who come into the Comments who could have explained it to you. That is what the Comments are for, and not talking about other ways to say stuff in English.

??The first possibility: "Escribis vosotros con un apartamento." doesn't even make sense. Why is it an option??

Its an option because its just trying to fool you with miscellaneous options or alternatives.

Right. One choice is correct and the others can a trainwreck of Spanish. Really bad.
