English sentence - one of Guadeloupe's most beautiful
beaches with its postcard white sand and coconut trees.
Kwiziq answer - l'une des plus belles plages de Guadeloupe avec son sable
blanc et ses cocotiers de carte postale.
Why is ‘de carte postale’ used with
cocoiters (coconut trees) and not sable (sand)? The English sentence uses
postcard white sand, not post card coconut trees
Freeform Writing Exercise C1
Not sure if I have understood your question correctly but just as postcard applies to both white sand and coconut trees, in the English sentence, in the French one, 'de carte postale' does too, and is just placed after the nouns it refers to instead of before.
Bonne Continuation !
