Please advice which is correct and why?
- Les personnes des nationalites differents
- Les personnes de nationalites differents
It is -
Les personnes de nationalités différentes = People of different nationalities
simply 'of' not 'of the' which wouldn't make any sense in English either
I hope this helps!
I would like to know also. I suspect your example might not represent this lesson since 'personnes' is the noun. And you are saying, in a sense, "people of different nationalities" which means that "different" and "nationalities" are both adjectives.
@Don: the adjective différentes uniquely and unmistakably belongs to the noun nationalités. There's no ambiguity there.
