Why is "...pour que je puisse comprendre..." not acceptable?
Freeform Writing Exercise A2
The subject in both clauses is the same, “je”, so “pour que” and subjunctive would not be used - pour comprendre is correct here. (I agree with Angela’s sentiment though that sometimes it does seem that the questions remain the same, it’s only the answers that change as you move between exercises/levels)!
See link - there are some other good YouTube videos covering the difference too - the graphics are often helpful no matter how many times I have read something.
I’m guessing because this is an A2 exercise and the subjunctive doesn’t figure at that level! It certainly sounds ok to me.
Thanks Maarten. The reference was perfect!
