ne expletif

"J'ai peur qu'elle ________ des bêtises." Why "fasse" and not "ne fasse?" Thanks.

Bonjour Lee !

As stated in related lessons, the "ne" explétif can be dropped in speech, so this sentence is correct.
However, "ne fasse" is also marked as a correct freeform answer.

I hope that's helpful!
À bientôt !
