Мій двоюрідний брат нікуди не їхав восени. Should also be acceptable.

Why is "went nowhere" incorrect?

It should also be acceptable, although it's less common usage than "didn't go anywhere." There is a problem with a lot of the English in the Ukrainian-language part of Duolingo. I haven't tried any other languages, so can't vouch for the quality there.

OK, in that case I will add this as an option.

I'm new here in the Incubator and I assumed it was incorrect because this sentence exists for at least 2 years, and the option was not there. Even though there have been user reports to add this, I can see them displayed...

I agree, I see that a lot of sentences lack alternative translations for a reason unknown to me :) Maybe just inattentiveness....

Other courses like Italian and German have this problem from time to time, I bumped into missing translations in the German course maybe once every two months. But usually they are related to synonyms, not to grammar like here :)
