What about when it is du in front of a thing? Is it still en or y?
de + [thing]
Je mange du chocolat -> J'en mange
Je mange des épinards -> J'en mange
Je bois de la confiture - > j'en mange

I hope this is helfpul.
Bonne journée !
As examples with “de la” and des are shown, the same is possible with “ du “. The first quiz question I get on the page covers this as well “ Nous achetons du thé ? Tu (...) achètes aussi “.
‘Y’ can replace adverbial phrases of places and things that have preposition ‘à ‘, not de.
Although the answer can be deduced from these, I would agree that an example in the lesson would be good to have.
