The mountains are behind what? There are several instances like this throughout the lessons.

does 'se trouvent' translate as 'can be found' or 'are found'?

Yes, exactly.

but when i wrote 'the mountains are found just behind.' it marked it wrong. is it not correct?

I put the exact same answer and I also got it wrong which caused me to fail this mission. :(

I believe it would've used an article (le or la) to describe "it" if that were the case.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sitesurf

in this case, le/la are not articles but personal pronouns, in the object form, matching il/elle

I don't even know what I was replying to anymore! Haha but I do see what you mean gramatically. Thank you for explaining that!
