Can anyone explain the difference between робина and сім'я? Is there a nuance I'm not getting or a reason to choose one over the other?

родина, excuse me...

родина is for further relatives and сім'я is for something like: mom, dad, son, sister, brother, etc.

But if someone says 'Do you have a family?' that usually means close members, surely? I still don't understand why Сім'я was not accepted.

Why is є not needed in this sentence?

It's a mistake of Duo. "Є" is absolutely necessary in this sentence.

I do not have Cyrillic letters, and I can not complete this exercise. Do I have to install it on my computer?

You can find websites for Ukrainian/Russian keyboards online. Or you could use google translate to type it up. You just need to copy and paste it afterward.

"У вас є родина?", "У тебе є родина?" - це, здається, кращі варіанти.

Why were we given two possible translations of 'family' if one of them is wrong?

Why not 'маєш сім'я'?
