It is so opinion on specific thing, so lesson says il est. But get marked wrong, is it because it is about colour? But is still a specific colour not colour in general
Here's a link to a similar question: tu-aimes-le-violet-oui-c-est-tres-jolie
Bonne journée !
Can you provide the sentence/statement? Il est ou c’est quoi ?
I had the same reaction as you, Carol. Trying to understand it better now. Maybe referring to the colour "le violet" is more general than if I point to something that colour and say "this colour", which would be specific. For example, we are buying clothes, I hold a blue shirt in one hand and a red shirt in the other and I say "Tu aimes le bleu?". You might say "Il est joli!" But if instead, we gaze at a rack of shirts and I ask the simple question "Le bleu?". A correct answer could be "Oui, c'est joli!". It is a challenging question.
