El / Lo

When referring to objects, would you always use 'el' instead of 'lo'?

Why doesn't "Lo de estilo victoriano me parece más valioso" work?

Hola Dan

The hint indicates that the speaker is referring to a singular masculine object. In this case, the correct answer is "El de" because the speaker refers to a particular item with Victorian style.

However, "Lo de" is incorrect in this context because it refers to an abstract concept or characteristic, not a specific object.

I hope this clarifies the correct usage.

Feel free to ask if you have more questions!

Saludos
