Rule and illustration

Assuming I have not misunderstood the situation, I notice that you follow your guidance 'avoir + entré [quelque chose] dans [quelque chose]' with a single example in which the 'dans [quelque chose]' does not in fact occur. You might want to omit this aspect from the wider stated rule, retaining your current illustration (which would then be correct), and follow up with the information that in most examples 'dans [quelque chose]' occurs, then adding an additional example to illustrate that fact, which at the moment is not illustrated.

Bonjour Lucien,

Thank you for your great suggestion! You are correct that we should have thought of more examples with "dans [quelque chose]". We have now added 2 new examples with "dans [quelque chose]" in this section of the lesson. As you can see it is quite specific (usually computer-related, digital data or information).

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

Lucien,

I agree it would be good to also have an example in which ‘ dans quelque chose ‘ was explicit.

The example uses an implicit situation of  ‘ dans quelque chose ‘, but it does happen so still adheres to the described usage, and is useful to cover.

The ‘ rule ‘ remains the same so a demonstration or statement that the ‘ dans quelque chose ‘ may be understood or stated, rather than a rewrite of the heading would be preferable in my view.
