Changement de programme [Subjonctif] quiz. My answer was marked incorrect. I don't understand why.

I wrote '`a moins que Bruno ne vienne ...' vienne is the correct form of subjunctive and 'ne' is needed after the conjunction '`a moins que'. I have read in lesson notes that the 'ne' can be dropped in a dialogue. However, in the short quiz which followed that exercise, 'ne' expletive was before the subjunctive verb in a dialogue. I don't believe I was wrong with my form of the subjunctive nor the 'ne' expletive.

Bonjour Narelle !

You're absolutely correct, and the exercise has now been updated to mark "ne vienne" as correct here :)

Merci beaucoup et bonne journée !
