In this question you have used ‘c’est’ - however it is not a general question. It is specific to ‘this’ apple. Please explain why it wasn’t ‘elle’. Thankyou
C'est can only be followed by a masculine adjective , making it a more general comment.
Take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson highlighting this -
You could also say -
Cette pomme est bonne - oui, elle est excellente
Hope this helps!
I think Sam's question is about why it isn't Oui, elle est bonne, since the speaker is referring to a specific apple.
I am not sure what the exercise was asking , just assumed it wanted to practice the use of 'c'est'....
Thankyou I understand that. But that’s not my question. Why is it C’est bon and not elle est bonne as it’s a specific apple. Not, apples (in general) are good.
Thankyou Cecile i understand that. But that’s was not my question. The answer they had was C’est bon and I thought as you said, it should be Elle est bonne as it’s a specific apple that is good, and not, apples (in general) are good. But I must be missing something and would like to understand why.
It would make more sense to say -
Oui, elle est très bonne
Oui, elle est délicieuse
but I didn't set the test and have no access to it ....
