The feminine form would be Elles sont mexicaines, and the masculine form Ils sont mexicains. If this is what you answered, that should be accepted.

2020-04-03 And the masculine form would be Ils sont mexicains, with no "e". That should also be accepted.

Actually I thought the post was Why isn't the feminine form correct? so my answer is awkward. I'll correct it right away...
Thanks
