Why not: a neighbor is tired?

Long story short: the sentence "a neighbor is tired" is almost impossible to make in Arabic. Basically, a sentence with "X is Y" where X is indefinite is not common and difficult to make in Arabic.

There's no period so it's not a sentence.

I had the same question... Why not???

AmineHadji gave a good explanation. Also it's not a sentence if there's no period on duolingo.
