Would you use the “he/she” verb ending or the “ they” verb ending?
I see several people have asked this or similar question. I’ve read one available answer and am still confused, and I continually run up against this des vs les.
Example: Men use razors to shave. = LES hommes utilisent DES rasoirs pour se raser.
It is LES hommes because it’s referring to men in general. Why is it not LES rasoirs? Isn’t it referring to razors in general?
Thank you for any help.
Usually “ne plus” in the negative for “no more, no longer” is pronounced without the s sound. But in this exercise “je n’aimais plus les vêtements que j’avais”, the s in plus is clearly pronounced. I cannot find the reason for this exception in any lessons - hoping it is just an error in the sound file? Also I can’t hear the “eu” in “j’ai eu envie” in the first sentence. Is this little word generally silent or omitted in oral, like “ne”, or is it just my ears?

There might be an error on a test I just took. The question as written is "Ma mère nous a récompensés pour nous être comportés... The sentence as given shows an agreement between the past participle of récompenser, and the auxilliary, avoir. Is this correct? My instincts say "Non", but perhaps I'm missing something.
