Bonjour, I was wondering the difference between when you would use "prendre soin de" and "s'occuper de". So are these both valid and are they interchangable: Je prends soin de ma jardin & Je m’occupe du jardin

Just to ask why it is "de conseils" , not "des conseils" ?
Is it because it is a continuation of "plein de" ?
I believe plein de is invariable, i.e. would never use des.
e.g. "plein de trucs" , "plein de choses"
Sometimes Vouloir (to want) is conjugated as veux at the present tense, but sometimes it is conjugated as veux for the pronoun je. Does this have to do with formality?

In Conte de fées (Passé Composé vs Imparfait) we're given the clue so his daughter had to take care of the garden and the animals. with 'devait' given as the correct answer and not 'a dû'. Why is that the case, when in this class it seems to be the opposite way around? It follows the context of her father rarely leaving his bed, and is followed by describing something she would also do once a month. So it seems unlikely to fit the 'we don't know if she fulfilled that obligation' case for using devait.
In “Je me suis donc retrouvée dans une cabine relativement spacieuse dans laquelle pouvaient coucher jusqu'à six voyageurs.” why is it pouvaient as opposed to pouvait? As the subject (une cabine) is singular I was expecting pouvait.
I got the question Mathilde a rentré la voiture avant qu'il ne pleuve. wrong because I chose "Mathilde returned the car..." as the "correct" answer was "Mathilde put away the car..." But in English, saying you put away a car sounds like you put a small object away. Since a car is so big, you would return it to its proper destination, which is why I chose this answer. I feel that both these answers could technically be correct.
