Nemělo by to být "Koně tady žijí..."?

"Koně tady žijí od šestnáctého stolet" is also accepted. Perhaps there was something else in your answer that Duo didn’t like. For troubleshooting, it’s best to either (1) use the report button in addition to commenting, or (2) include a screenshot in your comment, so that the team can see your complete answer. (Reporting is easier.)

It appears to me that Anet is suggesting that žijou is not standard. But it is a part of the spoken form of the standard (hovorová čeština).
