Should this not be die Küche? I'm seeing der Küche.

"Der" is the dative of "die".

Why can't it be "der Mann in der Küche essen"? I've used that on a test and didn't lose marks.

I put "Der Mann isst im Kuche. (with the umlauts but my keyboard won't cooperate) isn't "im" translate to "in the" I got marked off for using "in der" on another question on this same section. It's contradicting itself.
