"Er kommt sp├Ątestens um acht."

why can't it be "around 8"?

Or "by 8"? In English, that would be pretty much the same, I think.

I did 'by eight' as well. I'm not a native English speaker, but I tend to think it would be correct.

I think there is more emphasis here in the German than your English versions give. "Around eight" is certainly not right because it could mean a little before or a little after, and this guy is not coming after eight at all. "By eight" might be OK, but still isn't as firm as the German here.

In one of the correct solutions 'eight' is wrongly spelled as 'eigh'

Yes, this has been incorrect for a while!!!
