J'ai utilisé dessous mais le correct était sous. Qu'est-ce que c'est la différence?
This question relates to:French lesson "Using dans, sur, sous, devant, derrière, entre to say in, on top of, under, in front of, behind (prepositions)"

Bonjour Ann !
Nowadays, dessous is mostly used as an adverb, not as a preposition, meaning it's not followed with a location.
Its meaning is closer to underneath.
J'ai mis mon verre sous la table.I put my glass under the table.
J'ai mis mon verre dessous.I put my glass underneath.-> Here it's understood that the location has been mentioned previously, so is not repeated.
I hope that helps!
Bonne journée !
