In general, you won't get the alternative answers when you use the tiles. In some of the courses, there are a lot of alternative answers available, so it wouldn't be feasible to include tiles for all of them.
Your options are to roll with it, or to switch to text input.
Note that you don't always get text input just because you have that setting configured. Some, due to level, or whatever, are just set to be tiles.
(I find it particularly frustrating, second only to the picture tiles, having completed the course and going back through practicing. If you think you should know and want to test yourself it can be just too simple.)
There are people who will contest this point from the other side. Historical use favors the "and" http://bit.ly/2AgjOe7 but my hypothesis is that the contrary view arises from the work of American/Canadian math teachers. People will claim there's a rule about this, which makes me think it's something they were taught, but the fact the history of written use is so strong against it, it makes me think it probably wasn't the English teachers that taught it.
English is my native language. I'm a fifty year old Australian. I would only ever say this with the "and". My first thought was that the version without the "and" must be Hinglish. If it is indeed used by native speakers in some places with the "and" then those should be accepted, but should not be the default answers.
This course is Hindi from English though, not Hindi from American Mathematics!
(Native British English speaker and English educated engineer - I have never heard anyone say 'two hundred ten', much less write it. Four digit and up numbers occasionally get broken down, but as 'twenty-eight thirty', not 'two-thousand-eight-hundred thirty', for £2,830 say.)
As an FYI: In American English, we use "two hundred ten," "two hundred and ten," and "210" interchangeably in most informal contexts. I think that all three answers should be accepted. As a side note, in the US, it is not unusual to pronounce "210" as "two ten" out loud, but it is never written that way.
