No agreement with être?

In one of the quiz questions I see ´Vous êtes entré' . Why does the participle passe not agree with the plural pronouns ´Vous'?

This relates to:
Entrer can be used with avoir or être in Le Passé Composé... and changes meaning -

Bonjour Meghna !

Here we use the "politeness" *vous*, which refers to one person, hence the agreement in the singular masculine form.
Have a look at our related lesson on agreement with "être", which explains the case of "vous" in detail:
