I think 'you haven't got a chance' should be accepted as well.

Has anyone else noticed that when you upvote a comment, the "__ months/weeks/days ago" disappears?

"You haven't a chance" should be accepted, no?

    "You haven't GOT a chance" would make more sense

    Sorry, I disagree. It's fine to say "I haven't a ..." in some instances – for example, "I haven't a clue". I'd say it sounds weird to drop the "got" with something tangible, but generally fine with something intangible like a chance (at least, in British English).

      I did not say that one should always include "got". However, in this case, it seems to be better than without. "You do not/don't have a chance" would have been fine (nobody would add "got" here). "Not a chance" on its own is an idiom , and is fixed, so one would not add "got" here either (http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/not-a-chance). However, based on some research, "I have not a chance", seems to be used by natives, and is considered "informal" (which does not mean it's incorrect). Once again, I did not say your answer was wrong, I only said "'You haven't GOT a chance' would make more sense" in this case. At the end, the top comment encourages the Duolingo team to accept "you haven't got a chance", which has been liked by 12 individuals, so perhaps one day they will accept both suggestions.
