Lesson says says que go before what the only is related to
. As he earned only 1000 I put que before 1000 but it is marked wrong. Please explain
the ne ... que goes around the verb gagner -
Je n'ai gagné que €1000
It's the verb that needs to be restricted, so you need to write "ne verb que" to express only.
Hope this helps.
To me, this sentence follows exactly the pattern that que precedes that word which is the restrictive one. In this case it is 1000 Euro. So que precedes that. By chance, gagner is sandwiched between ne..que, but that is coincidental here.
