I am not a native speaker and I wrote It is now raining and it marked me wrong. Is this position of now grammatically incorrect?

No, it shifts the emphasis somewhat but it's not wrong.

It actually is raining now! But I live in Seattle, it's always raining.

Is the letter combination "gn" is Swedish pronounced with the nasalized sound "ŋ" followed by a regular "n" as it sounds like in this example?
