I'm just wondering how I would conjugate the verb "apporter" in the passe compose, to agree with gender and number? I know that in the passe compose, apporter becomes apporte (with an accent). But when it needs to be feminine, does it become aportee? And when it needs to be feminine and plural, does it become aportees?
I forgot to say, I'm using this with avoir. Like: Je les ai _____.
Understood! With verbs using avoir as the auxiliary/helping verb in the passé composé, the past participal agrees in number (singular/plural) and gender (masculine/feminine) with any preceding direct object.
In the example you give, it is important to know what the "les" stands for. "les cahiers = apportés BUT les lettres = apportées.
Sra (aka Mme)
(masc + plur)
J'ai apporté les cahiers
Je les ai apportés
(fem + plur)
J'ai apporté les roses
Je les ai apportées
