I have been studying French for a few months now.
I am currently studying quelle and quel and I have a question that I don't understand the answer of. So, the question is:
De quelle couleur est votre manteau?
The answer is:
The coat is beige.
So, I wrote:
Mon manteau a beige couleur.
But the answer was:
Il est beige.
From what I understood, il est means he is. So why does it mean it is?
I am not clear on why il est changes its meaning to it is. I would very much appreciate it if you provided me with some clarification as to how the meaning is changed. Basic grammar is what I need!
