My new school bag

I have a question. In a writing execrise, it requires translate the sentence: My new school bag is blue and yellow. I understand it's a new brand school bag that hasn't be used before, so I wrote: Mon cartable neuf est bleu et jaune. But it marks wrong and the correct one is: Mon nouveau cartable est ...

Why is that and is my sentence correct?

Hi Hà Thu,

What you have actually said is -

My brand new school bag is blue and yellow

Hope this helps!

Hi Mike, 

It's because the exercise was asking for new and not brand new so it should have been -

Mon nouveau cartable est bleu et jaune.

No, that doesn't help at all.  That's exactly what he said and it was marked wrong.

Hi Mike, 

If this is in a Kwiz, you need to repost using the Report It button on your correction board, you might have been marked wrong for another reason.
