Why do you use "le goûter" instead of "la goûter" since the object refers back to "tarte aux fruits" which is feminine?

Hi Diane - in this case, "Le goûter" is a noun which roughly translates as "afternoon tea". There's a hint in the exercise to look this one up as it's easy to be caught out by it.

Hope that helps!

At the very bottom of this discusdion ther is a link to both Aurèlie and Cécile explaining this more completely Diane...I also had ‘t heard of a French tea time and found the phrasing misleading!
