"I haven't got anything" should be accepted, since it is the most common way of expressing this sentence in standard English ('I don't have nothing', however, is nonstandard because of its use of double negatives).

You're right that that should be accepted but I think that "I don't have anything" would still be more common.

The fast speaking version sounds like nu and am have been contracted. Therefore shouldn't 'eu n-am nimic' also be accepted? Or is this not correct Romanian?

I don't have nothing should be accepted since some English dialects use double negatives (once again my Irish dialect causes a lot of reports XD)

I think they use stock sentences for people learning english from other language and they are trying to teach the correct way of saying things rather than any dialects or colloquiallisms, I.e Queen's English. So if they won't accept it from someone learning English, then it also won't be an acceptable translation from aan English speaker leaening another language.
