Hello Ron,
The question was no.8 in a C1 advanced focus test. We were asked to fill in the blank in the sentence, "En tant qu'Hommes, on est toujours...........à la découverte de nouveaux horizons".

I do recall that specific question and as I recall I had an incorrect response. I agree with your observation that being male, the verb agreement should be correct.
Wish I could be of more help on this.
J'espère que ma réponse vous aiderait.
Bonne chance et bonne continuation dans vos études en français, la langue de Molière et qui a été utilisé par le monde depuis l’époque d’Hugues Capet

I think the sentence is talking about mankind in general (in pursuit of new horizons), so there would be no agreement.
