General vs. Particular

Do you like pizza? is a question about pizza in general. Therefore according to the lesson it should be C'est but the answer given is Elle. I think either the answer or the lesson should be changed.

This relates to:
C'est vs il/elle est: Saying it is -

Hi Catriona,


can you post the entire sentence you have a question about? I am not sure what the context is.


-- Chris.

It was about the difference between C'est and il/elle when answering a question about whether you like something or what do you think of it. The lesson said if asked how do you like school, for example, you would answer C'est génial, but if asked how do you like your new school you would say Elle est géniale. But then the question was how do you like pizza, and the correct answer was given as elle not c'est.

Yes, absolutely correct.


Tu aimes pizza? -- Oui, c'est bon.
Tu aimes cette pizza ? -- Oui, elle est bonne.

Bonjour Catriona !


I looked at your Correction Board, and you had actually selected "elle", which was indeed marked incorrect, while "c' " was the correct answer.
To report on specific questions such as in this case, you should use the "Report issue" button, so we can access the very question you're referring to :)


I hope that's helpful!
Bonne journée !
