Why is there "le" in the sentence: Tu révèles ton secret et nous révélons le notre.
The correct sentence will be-
Tu révèles ton secret et nous révélons le nôtre.
Here, “le” is actually a part of the possessive pronoun- ‘le nôtre’ which means “ours”.
Also, le agrees in number and gender to the object it refers to, that is, the secret in this case which is masculine singular.
Have a look at the following Kwiziq lesson->
Le nôtre, le vôtre, le leur, etc = Ours, yours, theirs (possessive pronouns)
The sentence hence means-
You reveal your secret and we reveal ours.
Hope this helps!
