Can someone explain why it is not att rita here? I think another sentence was about children loving to draw something and verb + rita was incorrect as it had to be att rita. I'm a little confused.

Added it. With försöker, the "att" is optional.

is försöker the only one like this, where it's optional, or are there others?

Isn't the sound a bit wrong, with a short i? Like "ritta""?

This is a Swedish sentence so if you wrote in Swedish here, you must have had it as a listen and type exercise? In that case you have to write what the voice says, not alternative translations.
When translating from English into Swedish, hon försöker att rita is accepted.

It's quite associated with Sweden, so we do play a little on that. :)
