Funny. I still hear this is in an old fashion English construction "No mouse have I ."

Sounds like YODA : "No mouse have I for dinner." ;)

I learned at school "I have no mouse" - no "do not" in front of a "have". Duo says it is wrong. So when did it change?

I agree. Duo gave both " I have no" and " I have not got". These are both correct. "I do not have" is used in American, not in European English!

I wrote " I have not got a mouse" . This is correct English. Duolingo please provide for alternative forms of English. Thanks.
