Example Question #3 : Adjectives

Choose the grammatically correct sentence.

Possible Answers:

Tu as une appartement belle.

Tu as un bel appartement.

Tu as un beau appartement.

Tu as une belle appartement.

Tu as un appartement beau.

Correct answer:

Tu as un bel appartement.


"Appartement" is a masculine noun, but it also begins with a vowel sound. The preceding adjective cannot end in a vowel sound as well. "Bel" is a masculine adjective used to place a consonant between the two vowel sounds. Adjectives referring to beauty are always placed before the noun.
