Du, de etc and "some"

Nous avons bus du jus de fraises: I was marked wrong for writing: we drank some strawberry juice. They object to "some". Can you explain why that's wrong?

You are right: "some" is correct too in this sentence. This has been fixed.

(Beware, the correct conjugation is "Nous avons bu")
