Did you see them?

Let me know if this is correct: in the passé composé, the past participle agrees with the direct object? The answer was "Tu les as vues" - the direct object was feminine plural - thus the -es to the past participle "vu." I experimented with Google translate, and this seems to be the rule but I haven't found it on Progress with Lawless French, so I wanted to double check.

Yes, you discovered something important through your detective work: there are cases when the participle needs to be brought into agreement with the direct object. There are specific lessons for that on kwiziq:

Special cases when the past participle agrees (in number & gender) when used with 'avoir' in Le Passé Composé
