excusez-moi should be accepted for "excuse me" and la riviere should be accepted for "river"

What is wrong with "Excuse-moi, la rivière est dans quelle direction ?"

Yet again Duo does not let me return to my lesson which was 3/4 complete. This is happening repeatedly Happy Easter 2020!

".... in which direction is the river?"

Dans quelle direction est le fleuve is accepted.

Obviously you need the pardon to start with!

I answered, "Pardon, quelle direction est le fleuve?" It was marked wrong. Apart from not using "in/dans", is there anything wrong with my phrasing? Does it seem to anyone else that it should have been accepted?

you need dans: dans quelle direction est le fleuve ?
