What' wrong with " there is a gum in my bag "?

Actually your answer is correct and Duolingo is wrong.

Assuming that it means "chewing gum," and not a single gumdrop candy, I've never heard it said that way. You could say "there is some gum in my bag," or "there is a pack of gum in my bag," but I don't think "a gum" is correct English grammar.

Yje worst is that "the English sentence is wrong" is not even among the possibles error flags...
