"Nær ved mig" worked for an earlier sentence, but "nær ved drengen" didn't work here. Should the additional "ved" be acceptable in this case?

I don't know the answer to your question. However, one of the moderators commented on the exercise "Er du nær ved mig?", stating that "nær" = nearby" and "ved mig" = "where I am"

If you do an online search, you will find sentences using "nær ved mig", "nær ved dig", and so on.

Why is "tæt på" not accepted?

I honestly have no idea, I'm a native Danish speaker and I'm using this app to teach some kids and I've always said tæt på, I guess they're just trying to teach more formal language?

Same question. It is exactly the same of "nær", if not more correct!
