Bonjour Dr,

I had a look in the lesson and in the quiz. I can't see any mistakes anywhere. If it does happen again, please report the issue via 'report it' button in your correction board. 

Bonne journée!

Bonjour,

'jus' is masculine and therefore any article in front would be in the masculine form:

un jus de raisin = a grape fruit juice

le jus de la viande = the juice of the meat

du jus de pomme = some apple juice

 

See other examples here: jus

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

de la jus is correct
