Why is the answer not: Georges cherche pour son neuf stylo?
There is no suggestion that the new pen has been used before. If it had, it would be (masc/sing) nouveau - the answer given as correct.
Can you please explain why the answer is nouveau.
Hi. I think it is a trick question as ‘nouveau’ is a BAGS adjective and precedes the noun, but (don’t ask me why) ‘neuf’ follows the noun, as in “Pont Neuf”.
BAGS is a common acronym for: Beauty, Age, Goodness, Size. Used to remember the types of adjectives that precede the noun. See "Short and common adjectives that go BEFORE nouns".
What is a BAGS adjective?
