J'ai une question: A-t-elle joué avec son frère?

Shouldn't "joué" be "jouée," as the subject is elle?

This relates to:

Bonjour Kazuko,

No, there's only agreement with the subject when the helping verb is être - see https://kwiziq.learnfrenchwithalexa.com/my-languages/french/view/431

Isn't Joué a verb? Therefore it does not take a feminine form. Isn't it so?

Bonjour Claudia,


Joué is a past participle, and past participles do take a feminine form, which is called "agreement." There are different types of agreement depending on the verb.


In this case, the only time joué requires agreement is when it's preceded by a direct object; for example, J'aime la musique que tu as jouée.
