I have a multivariate polynomial f in x1,x2,x3,x4,x5,x6,x7 on a field k=GF2(a) and 2 lists z1=[1,a,0,x4,x5,0,0], z2=[1,a,0,a,a+1,x6,x7]. When I run f(z1), I have a polynomial, but with f(z2), I receive FractionFieldElement. So I can call f(z1).constant_coefficient(), but I could not do the same with f(z2).

F2=GF(2); Rr.<x> = F2[]
k.<a> = F2.extension(x^2+x+1) # looks like bad syntax: the dot in "F." on the left side
v=3
o1=2
o2=2
n=v+o1+o2
R=PolynomialRing(k,["x%d" %i for i in range (1,n+1)])
x=R.gens()
Fc=[] # o1 polynomials in the first layer
for im in range(o1):  # what's o1? Sorry, when I pasted, some mistakes appeared but I didn't control them
     f=0
     for i in range (v): # what's v?
          for j in range (i,v+o1):
                f+=k.random_element()*x[i]*x[j]
     for i in range (n-o2):
              f+=k.random_element()*x[i]
         f+=k.random_element()
         Fc.append(f)
for im in range(o1,o1+o2):
      f=0
      for i in range (v+o1):
           for j in range (i,n):
                f+=k.random_element()*x[i]*x[j]
      for i in range (n):
            f+=k.random_element()*x[i]
      f+=k.random_element()
      Fc.append(f)
w=vector([k.random_element() for i in range (o1+o2)])    
Fn=[R.random_element() for i in range (o1)]
while True:
        y_rd=[k.random_element() for j in range (v)]
        y=y_rd+[x[jj] for jj in range (v,v+o1)]+[0 for jjj in range (v+o1,n)]
        bc=[]
        Colist=[]
        for i in range (o1):
             Fn[i]=Fc[i](y)
             cc=w[i]-(Fn[i].constant_coefficient())
             bc.append(cc)
        mbc=vector(bc)
        for i in range (o1):
             Colist.append(Fn[i].coefficient(x[j]) for j in range (v,v+o1))
        Mtx=matrix(Colist)
        if rank(Mtx.augment(mbc))==rank(Mtx):
                break
yb=Mtx.solve_right(mbc)
ybb=list(yb)
zz1=y_rd+ybb
print(y)
for i in range (o1+o2):
      print(Fc[i])
      print(Fc[i](y))
      print(type(Fc[i](y)))
print('-----------------------------------------')
yy=zz1+[x[i] for i in range (v+o1,n)]
print(yy)
for i in range (o1+o2):
      print(Fc[i])
      print(Fc[i](yy))

Please edit the actual question to add this information; it's really hard to read like this.

In short, the reason for appearance of FractionFieldElements is the base ring of matrix Mtx, which is R, making Sage think it divides polynomials.

The easiest solution in this case is to use method .monomial_coefficient() instead of .coefficient() for extracting polynomial coefficients so that they will be in k rather than in R.
