Why do you use "le goûter" instead of "la goûter" since the object refers back to "tarte aux fruits" which is feminine?

Hi Diane - in this case, "Le goûter" is a noun which roughly translates as "afternoon tea". There's a hint in the exercise to look this one up as it's easy to be caught out by it.

Hope that helps!

 

Yes it does help! Thanks!

At the very bottom of this discusdion ther is a link to both Aurèlie and Cécile explaining this more completely Diane...I also had ‘t heard of a French tea time and found the phrasing misleading!
