De nombreuse/nombreux

In the sentence ‘Notre nouvelle édition s’est enrichie des nombreux artistes...’ I wonder if ‘des’ should be changed to ‘de’ as per the lesson. If not, could you please explain why.

Thanks.

Hi Judy,

In the sentence -

"...notre nouvelle édition est enrichie des nombreux artistes qui nous ont rejoint..."

It is 'des' because we are talking of the numerous artists who joined us

and not -

de nombreux artistes = numerous artists ( indeterminate)

Hope this helps!
