    The given correct answer is "marron." In French, "marron" is the singular form of the word, which means "brown." The other options, "marrons," "marrone," and "marrones," are either plural or do not exist in the French language. Therefore, "marron" is the correct form to describe "des stylos" (pens) in brown color.

    The given correct answer is "blanche." In French, adjectives must agree in gender and number with the noun they modify. Since "calculatrice" is a feminine singular noun, the adjective "blanche" also needs to be in its feminine singular form to agree with it. Therefore, "blanche" is the correct form of the adjective to use in this context.
