Query relating to answer key

Why was my answer ‘Où mets-je mes chaussures?’ marked as merely nearly right, with the only right answer being ‘Où je mets mes chaussures?’ ?

Hi Brionybeaven,

The inversion is rarely used in the first person singular (je) as it sounds so odd in French, there are a few exceptions but best avoided.

Hope this helps!

Could it be that you only checked one of the two answers?
