why is "The party ended when the man jumped in the pool." not accepted?

Why is the lesson forcing us to use words like "was" and "were" when they're not needed and actually make more sense without?

Må jeg sige "Festen afsluttede da manden hoppede i svømmebassinet"? Hvorfor skal det være altid Passive?

The s on afsluttedes is necessary to ark the PARTY as the one ending. Without it, it should be: "Festen sluttede." Which is saying the same.

it wouldn't accept hopped in the pool. Hop and jump is the same in English. Hop is said in English too.

Why do you have to put "was" in there? Does it not sound better without it?
