Jack and the giant

According to the notes, Jacques a descendu ... could mean he climbed down off the giant. I picked this answer, too, and it was wrong. Why? Thanks for your help.

Hi Liz,

I think it is because the auxiliary verb for to get off something is ‘être’ and not ‘avoir‘ .

So the answer should be -

Jack est descendu du géant 

Hope this helps!
