Freeform Writing Exercise B2
"Bocal" is used when the jar is usually empty or in a specific context. See the following examples:
Tu me passes le pot de confiture s'il te plaît? = Can you give me the jam jar please?
Tu me passes le bocal à confiture s'il te plaît ? = Can you give me the preserving jar please?
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
In my understanding, bocal would be fine in this context. What you interpret as a "correction" of your sentence is nothing more than a way to highlight the differences between your answer and the preferred answer. It doesn't mean that what you wrote is necessarily wrong.
