Incorrect question, or typo?

Shouldn't the phrase in the Dative section "Ich gene ihnen einen Tee" be "Ich gebe ihnen einen Tee?"

The Duolingo question for this phrase/translation ("Ich gene ihnen einen Tee"/"I genes them tea") does not make any sense. Shouldn't it be "Ich gebe ihnen einen Tee" translated "I give them tea?"

Please let me know if my reasoning is too far off here or I am missing something about the German language?

If I am correct, how does one notify Duolingo to have this corrected?

No you are right and duolingo is way off the mark. Just report it and forget about i.
