It was said in the instructions om would be understood as in and during... So isn't the answer: Do you read the newspaper during the morning correct? Thanks

"During the morning" does makes sense; we commonly say " in the morning, in the afternoon, and at night".

In the real world that would work. The problem is that Duolingo doesn't recognize punctuation, therefore it reads your question as a statement and thinks it's wrong.

In english, would this not translate to "...in the morningS?" or "will you read..." or even "did you read..."? which one is correct?

This is present tense. Past and future will not be accepted. In the mornings = Om formiddagene, I think.

Formiddagen and formiddagene sound identical in the recordings of this lesson (unlike differences in these endings elsewhere on Duolingo). All I could do was guess between "in the morning" and "in the mornings."
