The sister is in the city, but the brother is at home.

I've entered it multiple times correctly, but the system does not seem to accept it as the correct answer - even though it's showing me that it's the correct translation underneath, word for word: https://i.imgur.com/khqSo8S.png

You have to enter what you hear (the Latin) not the translation. So, you have to enter Soror in urbe est, sed frater domi est.
