I often struggle with grammar but am a little confused as to why it is 'de tomates' but followed by 'des fraises' after. both subjects are plural so why is it not 'des tomates' ? I imagine it is to do with 'un kilo de ...' ? Just wondered if anyone could explain this
Dictation exercise A1
"Un kilo de tomates' - a specific quantity of tomatoes. (1 kilogram OF tomatoes)
"des fraises" - an indefinite quantity of strawberries. (Some strawberries)
As an alternative example it could have been "je voudrais des tomates (some tomatoes) et un kilo de fraises (specific quantity)"
