Getting increasingly picky?

Am I the only one who feels like as the questions become more complex, the answers become more and more picky?

The number of ways to say the same things in both languages increases as sentences become more complex, so I'm getting an ever increasing number of wrong answers for correct questions. In the end I am feeling that while I was learning a lot of German at first, I am more and more learning the exact phrases that duolingo expects, rather than what the phrase components actually mean.

It's not just you. On average, the lessons seem to decline in quality the farther you advance up the skill tree. I'm not sure the problem is the complexity of sentences, though. Duolingo sometimes gets frustratingly picky even when the questions are fairly simple.
