Hi Monireh, 

Please take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson where you will find your answer -

Using ''de / d' '' instead of 'des' in front of adjectives preceding nouns (partitive article)

Bonne Continuation!

Hi Monireh,

It would be des bols where it not for the adjective nouveaux before the noun which requires de (adjective) bols. Bol in this case is considered to be a non-specific noun requiring an indefinite article.

Hope this helps.
