Bonjour Aurélie

What will be the correct pronom relatif in this sentence?

Bonjour de nouveau Hemlata,

If it were written "Je dois retourner au bureau où j'ai laissé mes clés" that would make sense.

Bonne journée

Bonjour Hemlata,

I would be inclined to use a conjunction in this context.

"Je dois retourner au bureau car (or parce que) J'ai oublie mes clés"

By using a conjunction (car or parce que) I am expressing justification/explanation as to why it is necessary for me to return to the office.

Hope this helps

Bonne continuation

Jim

Merci Jim, car makes absolute sense here. However, i was doing an exercise which gives me only où or dont as options, hence my query.

What do you think?

Merci Jim. Je suis d'accord avec vous. Votre réponse m'aide beaucoup :)
