Random “ne”?

Random “ne”?

Hi, one of the text options is “La ville ne sera seulement à quelque pas de la plage”. Should the “ne” be there, or has it been inserted incorrectly?

Bonjour Brian !

Indeed, here the "ne" was superfluous, as "seulement" carries the meaning of "only". Thanks you very much for letting us know, it's now been fixed :)

Bonne journée !
