So, just a minute ago, I missed this by selecting "You are a boy." and it told me the correct answer is "You are a child." This time I get the same phrase and select "You are a child" and i tells me I am wrong and that it's "You are a boy". Which one is it?

It's both. It can mean both.

What's the difference if I use usted es instead of tú eres? Don't they mean the same thing?

They both mean "you are", but usted es is more formal. For example, you'd use usted es with strangers as a sign of respect.

Usted is a formal form of . Both mean "you" but usted is for strangers.
