In one of the quiz questions, we are asked to negate "vous vous êtes réveillé". But isn't that a mistake? Shouldn't it be "vous vous êtes réveillés"? And therefore the negation would be "vous ne vous êtes pas réveillés"?
Tandy, the ‘vous’ in this case is the formal singular address (not plural), and the past participle takes agreement with that.
Agreeing past participle with subject's gender and number with (+ être) verbs in the compound past in French (Le Passé Composé)
Thanks, Maarten! I get it, and that's very helpful!
