I am confused. I know Un is used with masculine nouns and Une is with feminine nouns. But when I looked at the examples of these two:
They both use the English An, but in French, both nouns are feminine, ending in E. So, why use the masculine form of Un with Exemple???
Indeed, the French noun exemple is masculine even though it ends in -e. There's lots more nouns that end in -e and still are masculine, .e.g., lycée, musée. There is a lesson on this on kwiziq: Identifying the gender of nouns by some specific word endings in French
