The sentence does not say WITH "SOME' beans. It says WITH "THE" beans. So, why wouldn't ...avec LES haricot be correct?

You're partly right as it said The beanS which is in plurals. So in French it should be "les haricots". You forgot the 's' at the end.

Il y a = there is, correct? Is it the same for "there are"?

That's what I'm wondering as well and don't see an answer.

So why doesn't "Il existe" work here but does for the grey and purple ducks?
