The quiz asks 'Je prends cette rue ................ panneau stop. I supplied malgré du which was marked wrong with en dépit du given as correct. Why is malgré du wrong?
So I was reading one of these examples and I noticed that mieux was used instead of meilleur. I think meilleur would fit better as it compares two nouns (ta voiture and la mienne). Can anyone please clarify? The phrase is as follows:J'aime bien ta voiture, elle est mieux que la mienne.
I was confused with the subjunctive following the phrase "nous esperons que ce soit.." as I thought it didn't take it in the affirmative, only in the negative?
Why is à laquelle correct and à qui wrong in the above?
« Je possède trois appartements, ---- deux sont loués » is one of the kwiziq questions in this section.
« J'ai trois enfants, dont deux qui sont au collège. » is one of the examples from the lesson.
Also from the lesson " If including / [number] of which is followed by a conjugated verb, in French you need to add a relative pronoun (qui or que / qu') in front of the verb. "
There is no space in the question to write "dont deux qui sont loués" in the quiz answer.
Is this a mistake in the question/answer format, or is there a grammatical reason for the difference -eg passive voice - that I am missing ? The explanation and examples in the lesson do not seem to match the answer I anticipated being correct for this question.
