why is "brauchst du deine Zeitung" not correct?

It is.

But this is a sentence from the Pearson course ( https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24066422 ), and they have not added alternatives for du or Sie.

But fear not! In exchange, they provide the ungrammatical alternative Eure Zeitung braucht ihr? .

Your textbook dollars at work!

That translation is correct as well.

Thanks. Then why the application doesn't accept it? I've reported it anyway.

What is wrong with 'Brauchen sie deinen Zeitung?'

"Sie" is here the polite form of du, it should be: Brauchen Sie Ihre Zeitung?

Are you saying that with 'brauchen sie' I have to use 'ihre' for 'your' but if I had said 'brauchst du' then 'deinen' would be the correct version of 'your'?

yes. but note that Zeitung has the article "die", so it will be: deine Zeitung and not deinen.
