Why is it "en smule sukker" and not "en smule af sukker?"

I have the same question!

Why not "Jeg har en brug for en smule sukker"? Is it not "har en brug" and "behøver" the same?

If you said "Jeg har brug for en smule sukker" you would be home safe

Why is "af" wrong and it is "en smule sukker"?

Why is trænger wrong?

Why can't I say, "Jeg behøver lidt for sukker"? or af sukker?

The prompts for this example are very confusing. Again, I wonder why smule is not given as a first choice on the prompts?
