Why don't they say the sentence as we press the answer?

معلم، مدرس، استاذ All the same here. There is a slight difference between them but you don't really need to know it, you can find the difference in advanced arabic dictionaries.

Fun fact: there are no 100% synonym wards in arabic.

I think that if they could underline the typo, it would be better

Wouldn't it make more sense to say "Bob and Carrie are important teachers"?

It would be better English, though, that's for sure!

You're a new learner so they're teaching you like a child First learn the basics, the sentence you made is a bit more hard and it has grammatical rule, have patience and keep learning good luck

If you just always mark the correct sentence only and leave other sentences unmarked, everybody can easily guess the correct answer. All answers should be equally and properly marked.

I wish I could work out how to turn on accents... I thought I would be brave and try using an Arabic keyboard

The words in the sentence don't match at all
