Why not "Ce n'est pas de valeur?"

Very unsure as well.

I wrote "Ce ne vaut rien." and it corrected me to "Ça ne vaut rien."

What is wrong with what I put?

Thank you.

Why is "C'est n'a pas de valeur ?" wrong :-?

C'est = it is/that is

It has no value = Ça/Il/Elle n'a pas de valeur.

Sorry, il n'a pas de valeur got rejected.

Je suis d'accord avec CommeuneTexane. You have conjugated both être and avoir, so created the sentence "It is has no value" which makes no sense.

I could have understood if you tried to say "It is worthless", but that would be C'est sans valeur.

However, I think Il / elle n'a aucune valeur would also be a valid answer to this exercise.

"Il/Elle n'a aucune valeur" are accepted alternatives.

why can't it be"ce n'a pas de valeur"?

Why not the very simple phrase: c'est nul?
