Ce sont nos livres vs Ces livres _ nous

Hi,

I have looked all over the site, but cannot seem to find where to learn the correct answer for "Ces livres _ nous/These books are ours" - it's very frustrating.

For me, I'd write "Ce sont nos livres" or "Ces livres sont les notres".

Could someone clarify the instance where I'd use "nous" at the end? Or at least direct me to the lessons explaining these instances? 

I've been stuck on Gold A1 for 3 days (99.97%) and it's extremely frustrating to continuously have these setbacks. All I want is my diamond badge so I can move on to A2.

Many thanks

Hi Chase, 

You could also say -

Ces livres sont à nous.

Hope this helps!

Normally when you get a question wrong, you get a link to the appropriate lesson. Did that not happen here?
