The table is labeled oppositely to another I have seen
The lists here are numbered oppositely to the link above (1st form 2nd form).
The Figaro site says:
La réforme de l'orthographe de 1990 autorise à écrire le verbe asseoir sous la forme assoir.
I don't know the conventions of the figaro site- thus I don't know which form is the pre 1990 one, and which is post 1990. I don't know enough about verb conjugations to guess which is for s'asseoir and which is for s'assoir (same applies to this lesson). It would be helpful to give info here as to which is which.
Kwiziq uses Connaître, which according to figaro is the pre-1990 version (as do other teaching sites I've seen). Same for figaro
It says however:
La réforme de l'orthographe de 1990 autorise à écrire le verbe connaître sous la forme connaitre.
By comparison with s'asseoir and s'assoir, there's hardly any difference in conjugation of connaitre vs connaître (circomflex).
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate reflexive verb s'asseoir in Le Présent (present tense)"
