Bonjour Meghna !

I've looked through your history, and the mistake I found was as follows:
La voiture de Jim fait ________. (Jim's car is 2 meters wide.)
You wrote "2 metres" instead of "2 mètres de large" :)
And in another test, your answer was "2m de" missing "large".

I hope that's helpful!

Back with this one. My answer was ´2 m de large´ (Copy /pasted ) but was marked wrong. I don't get it?
