I typed in "У неё велосипед." (without есть) and it counted it as correct. Is this actually correct? And if so, why/how?

It is closer to "It is a bicycle that she has". The focus is on the object, and the possession is implied.

So "у нее есть велосипед" is both does she have a bicycle and she has a bicycle?
