J'ai une question: A-t-elle joué avec son frère?
Shouldn't "joué" be "jouée," as the subject is elle?
This question relates to:French lesson "Forming inverted questions with subject pronouns in Le Passé Composé (conversational past)"

Isn't Joué a verb? Therefore it does not take a feminine form. Isn't it so?

Joué is a past participle, and past participles do take a feminine form, which is called "agreement." There are different types of agreement depending on the verb.
In this case, the only time joué requires agreement is when it's preceded by a direct object; for example, J'aime la musique que tu as jouée.
