"Good evening" is a bad translation, frankly. The greetings actually go by the clock. "Pagi" is anything prior to noon. "Siang" is noon until 3:00PM. "Sore" is 3:00 to sundown (which is very nearly 6:00PM on the dot for most of Indonesia, since the sunset does not vary very much in the tropics), and "Malam" is any time after sundown. Translating "sore" straight to "evening" isn't wrong /per se/, but it's not right, either.
It it slightly different than English, you need to pay attention on the time of the day. More information here: https://www.duolingo.com/skill/id/Greetings/tips-and-notes
