Translation:The man drinks.
Why is Le homme the incorrect answer ? i thought that L'homme is just shortened Le homme.
Here is a link that explains this really well. Basically, the whole idea is to make the language flow better from word to word.
This talks about a number of different words where this happens, very helpful: http://french.about.com/cs/pronunciation/a/euphony.htm
The explanation for 'boit' threw me off because it said '(he/she/it) drinks' so I put 'He drinks'
'He drinks' would be "il boit". The sentence here is not "the man drinks"
What is the difference between "boit" and "bois" the sound is equals, some words like this confuse me :(
They're conjugated forms of the verb "to drink". This will look very confusing, but it is just changing the verb to represent the gender and tense of the action. English doesn't really use this kind of grammar. http://conjf.cactus2000.de/showverb.en.php?verb=boire
How to tell the differences between "The man is drinking" and "the man drinks" in French?
