Hi - In the note on the lesson it states that 'None of them are....' is acceptable English, however, this is incorrect grammar.
The correct grammar would be to say: None of them is.... i.e. 'none' is treated as singular and hence the use of 'is' and not 'are'. Thanks again for a fantastic French course!
This question relates to:French lesson "Aucun/e … ne = None of them (negation)"

Thanks for your comment. The "none of them is/are" debate is beyond the scope of our site, but if you do a search, you can see that many grammar experts offer examples where "are" is correct.
We're so glad you find Kwiziq useful, bonne continuation !
