No option to turn off the word bank (while practicing golden skill)

For the first time today i could not turn off the word bank while doing Duolingo, even though i was practicing skill where i have 5 crowns. And anyway, earlier, whatever i would do on Duo, there was always option to turn off the word bank. So is this a bug, one of the tests or simply a regular change (I hope not because I do not like it)?

On the web portal or the mobile app?

It is on mobile phone, on web site. And to add after more practice that i did afterwards, I think it occured on listening excercises only (among them i had one or few without word banks) but still.

I am experiencing similar thing aswell. Instead of having word banks, the exercise becomes a sentence completion question.

I have also to complete sentence, to choose from few offered words but i think similar was before. Maybe there is now more given pictures to write what they are, more repetition of the same sentence in a way, for example, first in target language and right after in english, but it is happening for some time, as well as when you get the right answer from Duo that cannot be moved from the question and user's answer ( I have also seen others' complaints on it, still do not know is it a bug).
