Hi Eugene, this question has been discussed to death. Best to search for it in the Q&A section.

You haven’t linked a specific lesson giving rise to this question. Is there one ? Presented without detail like this, rightly or wrongly, it suggests possible homework.

You can search ‘ descendre ‘ in the QandA search box for general queries like this, and you will find the lessons on this topic.
