Quels or Quelles?

 Bonjour Aurélie

"Quels/Quelles sont les danseuses engagées?" 

I answered "Quels" as it was unclear if the dancers were male/female or both.  I was marked incorrect.  Was that because of an incorrect assumption on my part ( that all dancers are female) or was there another reason?

thanks for your guidance,


This question relates to:
French lesson "Questions: Quel, quels, quelle, quelles = Which / what ?"

Bonjour Elizabeth,

Quelles is the correct answer because both words, danseuses and engagées, are feminine. All male dancers or a mix of male and female would be written danseurs engagés.

I hope this helps, bonne continuation !
