> You have a typo in your answer. > ze fietst niet

I wonder why is it a typo?

I got the same thing. They gave the two possible answers as "Ze fiets niet" and "Zij fietst niet". It might be some weird exception, so I don't know if this should be reported or not...

Everytime I read this sentence I translate it in my head as "Zij doet niet fiets" but then I remember that biking is a verb.

Really, anyone of moderators or people, who understand this variant, could explain about it? Why are there only 2 possible correct answers: "Ze fiets niet" and "Zij fietst niet"? Do we have there an exception or a mistake made?! Please, someone, explain it.. I have written "Ze fietst niet" like other people also, and it has showed me as the false answer :(

There was a spelling mistake in the system "Ze fiets niet" while it should have been "Ze fietst niet", still it should have only said that it was a typo. If it acts up again, report it and highlight "my sentence should be accepted.
