No one would say that "the boy drinks" would be more appropriate, yeah?

"The boy" would be "Pojken".

And I don't see anything wrong with "A boy drinks".

I answered correctly: a boy drinks. It suggested another correct answer: a boy is drinking. In this sentence, can "dricker" be used either as a present simple or present progressive verb?

Yes, the Swedish present covers both the English present and continuous.

I have no idea. The best way to keep track of what is happening with courses that are being developed is to follow jitengore's Weekly Incubator Update which he usually publishes every Sunday. Here's a link to the latest one: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/12544592 Or search the general forums.

The boy is wrong, that would be pojken, but it says en pojke so it's a boy.

Hope i made that clear

I typed a boy is drinking, and it corrected me saying :

One boy is drinking.

Answered 1 boy drinks, it was correct. The swedish language seems extremely unlogical and stupid.
