There is a line in this comprehension as - “Ça n’entraîne pas des frais très très importants.”
Should it not be ‘de’ ? I am taught that whenever negative comes, then indefinite article ‘des’ changes to ‘de’. Being a beginner, I may be incorrect . Please provide further clarification.

You would have to say for instance:
“ Ce ne sont pas des leçons très difficiles” you cannot say ‘de’ in that case.
Here is the lesson pertinent to that subject -
Hope this helps!
Thank you for your explanation. But I want to ask which of the following sentences ‘de/des’ frais is grammatically correct ?
They both are as you can say both....
Merci Madame Cécile !
