Hi Jennifer, nouvel is used for the masculine form only when it's followed by a vowel or mute h.

As Gruff said, "nouvel" is used for the male form when it starts with a vowel or silent h. When you talk about the two forms of "new" you probably mean nouveau/nouvelle vs. neuf/neuve.
"Ma nouvelle voiture" is a car that is new to you but not newly made.
"Ma voiture neuve" is a car hot off the assembly line.

I thought the answer would be nouveax (masc. plural) but it was wrong. The answer was nouveau. I'm confused
