NOUVE? Nouvelle

The car is feminine une voiture. Why is NOUVELLE wrong? I have not seen NEUVE used before. Can you explain PLEASE. I am not happy."  I was penalised for using NOUVELLE.

Hi Anna-liisa, we'll look at the question as it should tell you which word to agree in this exercise. French has two words for new, one means 'new' and the other is more like 'brand new'.
