I was doing a Kwiziq quiz and came across this question: "How could you ask "What is a fougasse?"
One of the answers I selected was: "Quelle est une fougasse ?"
Can someone explain why this isn't correct?
Quelle is the wrong question word as quelle always requires a noun:
Quelle fougasse tu as mangée? -- Which focaccia did you eat?
If you want to know what a fougasse is, you use one of the methods outlined in the lesson, for example:
Qu'est-ce qu'une fougasse? -- What is a focaccia?
Thank you for the great explanation Chris!
Actually, I had one follow up question.
When I took French classes in school, my teacher would always ask "Quelle est la date?"
Do you mind explaining why that question is correct but not in other contexts?
