Why not: "Il préfère celle aux pois, mais pas moi." ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/relox84

You could only say that if you're talking about a dish that contains peas (pois = pea also).

And what about the same with "à pois"? (cf "un costume à pois", "une robe à pois")


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stupefaite

il préfère celui à pois mais pas moi

is a valid translation.

'celui avec des pois' marked wrong

"... celle avec des pois"accepted for me January 2021

So was my answer, with celui avec des pois. But which is the better choice here, les or des pois?

j'ai écris "il préfère celui avec des pois, mais moi pas", c'est refusé ? parfois je me demande où Duo a bien pu apprendre le français ...

Why should it be "les pois", regardless of whether "des pois" accepted or not?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JoeDelaney7

Everything gets marked wrong with this one. Duolingo, do you like wasting my time?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/James-Cici-HY

You can. It would be marked right if your rest sentence is the same as the above answer.

why celle? we do not know the gender of the item


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Donald495929

Go with it. Your wife is trying on dresses, so you say celle.
