Grammar help #1

Hello again community! Can you please explain me:

  1. Le roi a-t-il du pouvoir ? Why should I use 'du' here?

2.C'est une possibilité parmi d'autres. Why can't I use 'des autres' here?

Thanks in advance, lingnots to everyone helping☜(゚ヮ゚☜)

1. Du is a partitive article, used for an amount of something. You use it when you could say some in english

2. Des becomes de before an adjective.


Great, thanks for clarifying, never noticed that I make mistakes like that even after long period of studying french.

  1. "pouvoir" en ce cas est un nom. "the king, has he some power?"
