could an english translation be "the rabbit sits in your hat"?

Yes, that is accepted too.

Not that you can also leave out the "sitting" altogether and translate "zitten" as 'to be'. See here for an explanation: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/5785064

You should sit on the hat, not in

But well, I have realized that in fact, a rabbit can also sit in the hat. So Maybe We are all wrong.

Yes that what I was thinking. When I began this excersice. I saw "in jouw hoed" I was going to write "in your hat", but then I thought it has to be "On your hat", And I thought that grammatical structure was different in Dutch. But then I got it wrong. ????????????????
