Bonjour Meghna ! "Nos" is the possessive adjective "our", which you use with plural nouns: - "Nos amis" (Our friends), "nos grands projets" (our big plans), "nos aventures" (our adventures)... See the lesson: https://french.kwiziq.com/my-languages/french/view/3113 "Les nôtres" is the possessive pronoun "ours", which replaces a previously mentioned thing: - "À qui sont ces chaussures ? Ce sont les nôtres." (Whose shoes are those? They're ours.) I hope that's helpful! Bonne Année !
