No agreement with être?

No agreement with être?

In one of the quiz questions I see ´Vous êtes entré' . Why does the participle passe not agree with the plural pronouns ´Vous'?

Bonjour Meghna ! Here we use the "politeness" *vous*, which refers to one person, hence the agreement in the singular masculine form. Have a look at our related lesson on agreement with "être", which explains the case of "vous" in detail: https://french.kwiziq.com/revision/grammar/agree-past-participle-with-subjects-gender-and-number-with-etre-verbs-in-le-passe-compose-conversational-past Bonne journée !
