I am still confused with past participles agreement with the verbs. e.g. Les fleurs que j'ai senties.
This relates to:Special cases when the past participle agrees (in number & gender) when used with 'avoir' in Le Passé Composé -
The rule is: if the COD comes before the participle, then you need to agree the participle.
Les fleurs -- COD (feminine, plural)que -- relative pronoun, referring to "les fleurs"je -- subjectai -- auxiliary verb (form of avoir)senties -- participle of sentir.
Since "que" comes before "senties", the participle needs to match feminine, plural.
