Why is it that "délicieuses" is plural, in agreement with "moules", and not with "l'air"?
Dictation exercise B2
The expression 'avoir l'air' means to seem / to look and the adjective will agree with the noun it refers to, unless you use the general -
ça a l'air bon = that looks good
ces prunes ont l'air bonnes = these plums look good
elle a l'air fatiguée = she looks tired
If in this expression the adjective agrees with the subject and not with "air", why in the sentence "leur carte n'a pas l'air mal", the adjective is masculine and not feminine "male"?
Good question Camilla,
It is because 'mal' (like 'bien') here, is an invariable adverb.
Nothing to do with the adjective/noun male , the opposite of femelle.
Bonne Continuation !
