Les fleurs que j'ai senties étaient belles.

1. can I say 'je les ai sentiées.'?


2. and when and how can I know how and when to use 'Lui' 'leur' 'leurs' etc? Is there a lesson about how to use them and their meanings?

Hi Lucie,

1. You can say -

Je les ai senties  ( if les refers to les fleurs) = I smelt them

2. lui and leur are indirect object pronouns and the following Kwiziq lesson should help you understand those -

3. leurs is slightly different and it comes under possessive adjectives. For those, take a look at this Kwiziq lesson-

I hope this helps!
