"Tu aimes le violet? Oui, c'est tres joli."

"Tu aimes le violet? Oui, c'est tres joli." I said "Oui, il est..." and was marked wrong. Why is that? The object referred to is specific - "le violet". This is not a general statement.

This question relates to:
French lesson "C'est vs il/elle est: Saying it is"

Hi David,

You cannot say about a colour -

‘ Le violet, il est joli ‘

It has to be -

C’est joli

You could say however,

‘Ce pull violet est très joli ‘

or,

Ce violet est très joli’

Hope this helps!
