Why is, Ces chaussures, je les ai voulu immédiatement not listed as choice. The past particle of vouloir is voulu. Thanks for your help.
The answer is in this lesson. This is a case of the direct object pronoun preceding the verb - agreement of the past participle with the direct object pronoun is required. It is a more advanced level lesson so you likely have not come across it yet.
In this case < les > is the direct object pronoun, plural (and feminine, because it replaces < ces chaussures > ). Therefore the past participle < voulu > takes the terminal < -es > in agreement.
Special cases when the past participle agrees (in number & gender) when used with 'avoir' in the compound past in French (Le Passé Composé)
