"These documents are useless" would be a better translation.

I agree. That is why I wrote it and was marked wrong.

Duo probably wants to stress that "ne servent à rien" is the phrase taught and you will have to get back to it in the reverse translation exercise.

These documents are useless = Ces documents sont inutiles.

Duo shouldn't offer it as the first suggestion if it doesn't want you to use it. BTW this translation has been not only accepted but used as the primary translation in other lessons.

Serves no purpose is also a valid translation but not accepted
