"There are pink bananas."
Translation:Il existe des bananes roses.
"Il existe des bananes roses" and "Il y a des bananes roses" .. Do both these sentences mean "There are pink bananas." ? If so, how can I distinguish between them?
Il existe is more so when you want to make it clear that something ACTUALLY exists. If you want to say for example that 'there are 3 apples on the table', you would use il y a.
Musa velutina. They grow upside down, peel themselves when ripe, and are bright pink. They also have seeds that will break your teeth.
Surely this should be ils existent des bananes roses, as bananas is plural. Does il existe not translate as it exists?
Il existe is an impersonal expression in French, like il y a and il faut. It isn't conjugated for plural things.
