Je manque de concert . . .
The test says that "I missed the concert of . . " is ''J'ai manqué du concert . ." . In the lesson it says '''I missed the train'' is ''J'ai manqué le train'''. What is the difference between ''concert'''and ''train''? Why is one noun preceeded by '''de'' and the other not? Thx
This relates to:Manquer (de) + thing = To miss / lack something -

Will pass on your comments and try to get it rectified.

I have now checked and the correct answer is correctly marked as:
J'ai manqué le concert de Michael Jackson en 1992 à Paris.
Hope this helps!
