tu vs vous

tu vs vous

The question required the use of "you" but did specify which you.  The correct answer was given as " que vous ne soyez"  I wrote " Que tu ne sois" and was marked wrong.  Not clear why?

Hi Kay,

The only Kwiz in that lesson with 'soyez' was:

Je vais vous ramener chez vous avant que vous ne soyez fatigués 

for 

I am going to bring  you home before you are too tired

So the context is there, you are talking about someone you say the polite 'vous' to or to a collection of people. The 'tu' form would be incorrect in that sentence.

Bonne Continuation !

Both are grammatically correct of course, so depends on whether there was a “contextual” indicator of formality or plurality. Do you remember the full sentence/question ? May be best reported through quiz report button, as easier to have this checked from there.
