One observation: "Sobrinha" is niece and "sombrinha" is parasol, a little umbrella. :D

You don't. " eu" can be omit

If I say I (only) have ONE niece, is it "UM"? "One niece" was rejected

No, you still use "uma".

Here, Duolingo accepts the correct "I have a ......". Two questions ago, "I have ......" was rejected and only "I have got ......" was accepted. Again, the irritating Duolingo confusion raises its timewasting head!
