why "le" as object referring to a feminine noun?
In one of your quizzes than answer to a question is "et elle invite des amis pour le goûter." This is referring to tasting an apple tart (une tarte aux fruits) which is feminine. why use le instead of la?"

Bonjour Diane !
Here we're actually using the masculine noun "le goûter" = the (4 o'clock-ish) snackYou could compare this expression to the UK "tea time", though in France, it's more of a sweet snack, usually after school (4.30pm in most French schools).You can also think of "le petit-déjeuner", "le dîner", etc
I hope that's helpful!Bonne journée !
