Why is 100 wrong? ;)

The "correct answers" are written in grammatically incorrect English. "How many centimeters does a/one meter have?" would be more appropriate.

    no, i once experimented with a lot of combinations, and Duolingo will accept a lot of combinations.

    For better understanding, what would the sentence look like if the English were, "A meter has how many centimeters?"

      I suggest : "How many centimetres are there in a metre?" The Oxford Advanced Learners' Dictionary has "There are 100 centimetres in a metre."
