- Pay attention to whether you need du, de la, or des.
- Write two sentences in the negative, saying the subject doesn't want any of whatever you're talking about.

- In simplest terms, the partitive means some. In the negative, it means none or not any.

|tu finis||vous finissez|
|il/elle finit||ils/elles finissent|
