In this example, there is no clear agent. Who is eating the paella? It could be la gente (3rd sing.) or las personas(3rd pl). Both answers are correct

I am not sure what you mean. Could you clarify a bit more please?
The answer for this question, "In Spain people eat paella" is "En España se come paella". This lesson is about forming a passive sentence using "se".
If we want to say "In Spain, paella is eaten" , then "se come" would be the obvious answer. When the sentence is "In Spain, people eat paella" there is a nominative word here. People. There is another translation for the third person plural in this case, no? Or would you have to explicitly say "En España las personas comen paella?" I'm sure I have seen uses of "se comen" without an explicitly named plural subject...
