As per the solution both options are accepted. I think in Spanish, niños can be used for both children and boys. When we translate from Spanish to English, based on the context, it can be either boys or children.
Yes, you can translate: They are boys to Son niños. In English they is mandatory. Not in Spanish
Couldn't "Son niños" also translate to "You are boys". What is the difference?
how do you know when son is used if it is referring to boys or children? I am missing something
