La difficulté.....

La difficulté est les mots "l'histoire" = story or the stories" et "l'histoire = history or the history". de plus, nous ne disons pas "The maths" plural as it relates to mathematics in English. The two test questions were thus very confusing. Can you please explain... Thank you.

Bonsoir Daniel, Je suis d'accord avec vous. C'est très difficile de savoir soit "l'histoire" = story or the stories" soit "l'histoire = history or the history". Et bien sûr que les maths est une phrase maladroite. In English we would say «the math» as in the math problem or the mathematics; however, en français c'est tel «(US) (= mathematics) maths fpl» This comes from the Collins-Robert French dictionary. Bonne chance,
