Me suis-je coupé... Isn't couper a verb that takes avoir? Me ai-je coupé... What is the exception here?
This question relates to:French lesson "Forming inverted questions with reflexive verbs in Le Passé Composé"

'Couper quelque chose' will indeed take 'avoir' as in,
J'ai déja coupé la baguette= I have cut the bread already
but this is 'se couper' ( to cut one/yourself) which as all reflexive verb takes 'être'.
Me suis-je coupé/e ? is correct....
Hope this helps!
