Чоловік is the best translation for 'husband' in literary Ukrainian.
Like any language, Ukrainian has synonyms. Other words include муж (sounds archaic and poetic in literary language), дружина (used to be a both husbands and wifes in the past, now the meaning 'husband' is obsolete and poetic, usually this word only means 'wife'), супруг (very rare). However, those are nowhere as common as чоловік, so Duolingo probably won't accept them.
Чоловік is the neutral word, and it's usually the best choice.
«Чоловік» can mean either 'man, male' or 'husband', depending on the context.
