WHO EATS A BLACK APPLE?!
You may disagree with Duolingo's choice of examples but you can't express it that way.
Please behave and be patient with the program.
For the record: a black apple is a RED apple but it is a deep dark red...black apple. They are big & delicious.
That's very good news, for all rebels...
How do I tell when to use noir or noire?
All nouns have a gender in French. Adjectives have to agree with the noun they qualify.
Therefore, "noir" goes with masculine, singular nouns and "noire" with feminine, singular nouns.
Note the plural forms: "noirs" and "noires", respectively.
I thought noir was one of those adjectives whose spelling stays the same irrespective of the gender??
Look at the second post on this page.
I don't understand why we put y and a. What do they mean together and separated?
'il y a' means 'there is' or 'there are', it is an impersonal construction you should consider as a block.
"y" is a pronoun meaning "there".
I've never heard of a black apple. You learn something new everyday.
why don't you try "pomme noire" in Google Images ?
Why am I not allowed to use, "Voilà une pomme noire."?
the more direct translation for "there is" is "il y a"
