Riendo vs riéndose

Is there any problem with adding "se" to the verb "reír" here?

Hola Elias

For the given sentence "Ellos __ mucho." (They were laughing a lot), you are asked to conjugate "reír" in the Imperfect Progressive/Continuous form.

The correct answer is "estaban riendo". However, the reflexive form "riéndose" is also grammatically correct and commonly used, so "estaban riéndose" is also acceptable.

Apologies for the late reply, and thank you for your patience.

Saludos

Silvia
