"Is it yours?"

Translation:È il tuo?

January 3, 2013



Why is "È tua?" not an acceptable answer? If the person being questioned is a woman, shouldn't the pronoun be in the feminine form?

January 18, 2013


the pronoun doesn't follow the gender of whose ever it is, it follows the gender of the object being described. Also you didn't include the definite article.

So is "it" always assumed to be male unless otherwise specified? Thanks

January 26, 2016


Why does the article need to be included in this case?

November 9, 2014


So if I answer 'È la tua?', it should considered?

It is valid but you did not have "la" as an opcion. 8/12/17

Duo did not even allow me to choose an article.

I got this wrong too and don't get it.

January 24, 2013


Just found the answer. It IS acceptable, but you should mark the other box AS WELL. So there are two correct answers, and we've missed one of them.

This comments area seems to be for several different questions, some of them multiple choice. The question i got was "Translate the following question into Italian: Is it yours?" I got 5 words to pick from, four of them different forms of "you", the fifth one was È.

Duo, how, with no prior guidance, was i supposed to answer this correctly, much less without basically guessing (having first discounted the plural, of course)?

I've not learned anything from this question, since you dont supply a reason why "tue" was incorrect or "tuo" was correct.

I agree with Valete. Additionally I will add other italian grammar sites use capitals when they wish to state the formal "your (of Lei) il Suo, la Sua, i Suoi, le Sue http://italian.about.com/library/fare/blfare132a.htm

YOu ahve not been using the formal 'you' in the 3rd person until now in any of yoru translations--clean it up and fix this

January 3, 2013


Actually, as a translation of "Is it yours?" From English to Italian, it would be one of these sentences: 1) È il tuo? 2) È le tue? 3) È i toui? 4) È la tua? And all these senteces are correct translation. Am I right? Show your opinion.

February 27, 2015


It can't be 2 or 3 because those are plural, unlike "Is it?" They do however accept 5) È tuo? and 6) È tua? I've read these discussions but still haven't understood why the definite article is sometimes omitted.

I have done pretty well with everything up until this point and haven't skipped anything. But this area with all the "e tu, e la sue, i tuoi", etc. Is confusing me pretty thoroughly.

February 15, 2019


I agree with both commenters--if you want to accept "suo", please at least capitalize it.

January 9, 2013


Why is "È lo tuo?" not acceptable?

April 7, 2013


I'm confused! What's the difference between tua and tue?

June 30, 2016


Tua is Feminine singular 'la tua farfalla' Tue is Feminine plural 'le tue farfalle'

September 24, 2018


it is right ?

March 20, 2019


I am confused about when to use the article…

July 28, 2014


The way I understand it right now, you need the article at least once. So if there is no article in there, you're doing it wrong. If it is in there, you can get away with not mentioning it a second time.

August 19, 2014


I don't feel like this is really teaching me the difference when to use tua, tuo or tuoi. I'm having to cheat just to figure it out

July 9, 2017


My keyboard allows for this accent-- é -- but they said '"watch accents" b/c the correct accent points in the opposite direction. Apparently it matters. Can someone please explain the difference in how it's pronounced with the different accent? Thank you.

It does not accept 'È le vostre'. Is this because 'le vostre' is the plural version of 'la vostra'?

August 18, 2014


All three options come out as "wrong" on my phone??

March 13, 2016


e questo tuo

March 18, 2016


What is the difference between "tuo" & "tuoi" ????

May 31, 2016


Depends if the noun is singular or plural (in this case masculine). For example "his hat" = "il tuo cappello", but "his hats" = "i tuoi cappelli"

May 31, 2016


there is no "il" to put here

November 29, 2016


how do we know if its a feminine or a masculine?

April 7, 2017


I am still confused why tuo was used instead of tue. Read through comments and no one seemed to answer that question.

July 24, 2018


It is because it has to agree with "il".

October 7, 2018


I put "È tuo?" & was accepted. Was it wrong? Or both "È tuo?" & "È il tuo?" are correct?

March 4, 2019


How is this a masculine question?
