For example: "Marie achète du café"
Le café is a location and a drink.
Couldn't this sentence means both "Marie buys a coffee" and "Marie buys from the cafe"?
How do we know when "de" refers to "from" and when it refers to "some"?
‘Marie prend un café au Café ‘ would be ‘Marie is having a coffee in a Café.’
The use of ‘acheter’ can only mean she is a shop and buying some coffee.
Think of what makes more sense in the context you, the exam, or the person you are talking with uses it.
