case of subordinate clauses with que

case of subordinate clauses with que

The sentence :

Je suis aussi allé acheter une nouvelle bibliothèque que j’ai passé plus de deux heures à monter.

 

The hint given was ‘la bibliothèque’.

I took this to mean that passé should agree with bibliothèque and wrote passée.

I was using the rule for the ‘case of subordinate clauses with que’. Why am I wrong here?

Hi G,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The hint shouldn't have been there and I have now removed it.

There is no agreement between the past participle 'passé' as bibliothèque is not its object.

 Bonne Continuation !
