bad question

Elle pardonne à Paul et elle .....(forgives us) I thought about this question and as far as I know either elle pardonne à nous or elle nous pardonne would be correct. I chose elle pardonne à nous thinking it was parallel structure, but it was marked incorrect. Tell me how I should have known the correct response.

Bonjour Ann, After reading your question, I understand the confusion on this; however, let's take a look at this phrase: Maxim pardoned Paul and her --> Maxim a pardonné à Paul et lui. In this structure Paul and her are not part of the group, alors nous ne pouvons pas utiliser «nous». J'espère que cela vous aiderait. Bonne chance.

No it was to read: "Elle pardon à Paul et elle nous pardonne." I had used "Elle pardon à Paul et elle pardon à nous."

Ah, Je comprends bien.
