I found the following sentences:

Il est impossible de penser à cela.

Difficile à dire.

C'est difficile de choisir.

Ces choses sont impossibles à comprendre.

These sentences are not coherent on the proposition of the adjectives, namely à and de.

But I don't understand when to use à and when to use de. How can I use them apart correctly?


1 Answer 1


After an adjective, you can use à when this adjective is related to some kind of ability, attitude, or imminent action.

De is used to express feelings, stats of mind, and obligation.
