Hi - I am confused about how to tell is means the story or history (the academic subject).

The french was:

Il déteste l’histoire mais il adore les maths

The choice of answers were:

He hates the story but he loves maths

He hates history but he loves maths

I chose story, but I don't understand how to know which is correct.

Thanks

Hi Deborah,

Here they were school subjects -

History as opposed to Maths.

Sorry, I used some punctuation which seems to have removed some of my question.

I am confused about how to tell if "l'histoire" means the story or history (the academic subject).

I suspect only context will tell you.
