This question relates to the use of avoir vs prendre in one of the test questions for the subjonctif linked to this forum.
Question: "Ils n'auront pas de dessert à moins qu'ils ne fassent leurs lits".
I thought when talking about having a meal or a drink etc. the verb "prendre" was used - not avoir?
In this example, it is more to translate the idea of 'getting a dessert' rather than eating it, so 'avoir' is correct.
Hope this helps!
It does thank you!
