Thank you Momoma
And if the question is:
What are Joan �s chores at home?
Is it correct to answer:  Joan �s chores at home are tidy her bedroom .... ?
What are Joan �s duties at school?
Is it correct to answer: Joan �s duties at schoo are be quiet ..... ?
And in a writing production you have the prompt Hometown can you write the sentence:  His hometown is Lisbon ?

If you´re listing only one chore than I think it would be better to answer:
Joan´s chore at home is tidying her bedroom... or ... One of Joan´s chores at home is tidying her bedroom... (I think that it´s better to use the gerund in this structure).
My suggestion is the same for the question about her duties at school. 
It´s ok to say his hometown is Lisbon.
Hope it´s helpful!
