From the above notes, I undertand "les tous livres"=all the books
and tous can be also used alone to refer to all (of something mentioned previously)
But I cannot find the explanation of "les a tous". I know it means “all of them” but what the role the "a" serves here?
Firsly, it is -
tous les livres = all the books
Secondly , 'il les a tous'
Q: Il a tous les livres d'Astérix ? = Does he have all the Asterix books?
A: Oui, il les a tous = Yes, he has all of them
'a' here is the verb 'avoir' in the present tense.
