You would not say " this train was accelerated..... " simply... "this train accelerated.."

Agree. I'm ok with even having "was accelerated" as it's grammatically correct if less common. But there's no way "the train accelerated" should be wrong. (July 2021)

It's because diper- is passive

"Dipercepat" is passive voice in Bahasa so they use was + v3 (was accelerated)

I put: The train was sped up and then slowed down.

I was marked wrong.

"slowd down" = "decelerated" -> "This train was accelerated then decelerated."
