Hi English Learner,

We use "don't" here because "people" is a plural noun that takes only "don't".

And "doesn't" is a verb used with only "he/she/it" and a singular noun.

Your answer is correct but the computer program cannot deal with an answer which is not written exactly the same as the one given.
