I had the question "I found ten eggs, and you? - Me, I found six." The answer was j'en ai trouvé six, but I wrote j'ai trouvé six because there was no specific reference to 'them'. I think the question should read "Me, I found six of them". This would make things much clearer.
I had exactly the same problem. I thought it was a trap where it was not translated as : "I have six of them" just I have six. The obvious answer was "J'en ai six" but I thought "...of them" had been deliberately missed to demand a different answer. Non of the examples in the lesson illustrate this.
Hi Becky and Ian,
The accepted answer is -
J'en ai trouvé six = I have found six ( of them)
If you said
You would be saying that you have six of them not specifying that you have found them which was being asked.
Hope this helps!
