I'm confused by the correct answer to this question:
>>La population du Nigeria est de plus de ________ personnes.
I wrote "un cent million de". However, the correct answer was "cent millions de".
Why do we drop the "un" in this case (unlike the examples)? Why is "millions" plural, even though it is only 1 million?
in French, take a look at the following lesson -
Expressing numbers 70 to 999 in French
No rhyme or reason it is just the way it is.
un million = one million
un milliard = one billion
un million = one million ( singular)
deux millions = two millions (plural)
cent millions = one hundred millions (plural )
Hope this helps!
