When using the 'Word Bank' one can only use the words offered - thus 'Habias' is offered & 'Ustedes habian' is not. So how do I get that one right? 'Habias' is correct but DL marked it wrong - again.

I typed "Habías establecido un restaurante" and it was marked as correct. So, perhaps it wasn't accepted before and now it is? July 2018.

I would expect Había, habías, and habían to all be correct.

Why doesn't it allow "ponerse" to be used ?

Perhaps you meant "poner (un restaurante) ", which would be fine. The reflexive form "ponerse", though, wouldn't really be used in this sense. It would suggest that you set up a restaurant for your own use only.
