The structure with the verb before the subject was refused. It should the more correct one! Doesn't it?

Actually, both are correct. Arabic is flexible and you can start with the verb or the noun (subject) - sometimes with minor changes when it comes to the verb. Anyway, in this instance it is completely ok to say تسكن جدتي - anyway ... I guess Duolingo has another opinion.
