Hi Carol,

I have just done the exercise and it does say,  'fut lancé/e' which is correct ...

Hi SC and Marika,

Thank you for pointing this out, the word 'une compétition' was missing from the hint. It has now been added.

The relative pronoun will be -

auquel for un concours 

and

à laquelle for une compétition.

David, the passé simple is the preferred tense for these kinds of historical or literary passages.

Hope that helps!

why is "auquel" bolded?
