Nothing. Suo mean he she or it. In my opinion Duolingo is using randomly he/she to learn you that it's not connected to person but rather to gender of word behind it.
Am I correct in saying that this sentence does not actually indicate whether the birthday belongs to a male or female? Not complaining, just asking as it doesn't come up as an alternative answer.
Suo alone can means he/she/it and, as I see in the discussion forum, formal you, so there's four options.
It looks like the word choice is "he" instead of his in my example. So, the pronoun would make the choice incorrect.
Yeah, because of the fast pronunciation. The Italian voice of google translate can be much more helpful in many cases.
Why doesn't "tomorrow is your birthday" work? Sometimes formal you works, sometimes not
If you would be taking formally, you would write "Suo", with a capital letter, so: Domani è il Suo compleanno. In this case it's only pointing to a third person.
That's what I thought it was..."tomorrow is your birthday" to me it looks more masculine then feminine, if it is "her" or "his"???
If it is il suo, should't it be masculine? Should't it be la sua for feminine? It gave the right answer as her birthday.
I agree. It seems that Duolingo has taught us that when in doubt of gender to always select male AND when the clue here is "il suo", why would I select "her" instead of "his"? Seriously, if anyone will please answer this question in a manner it is truly teaching us, please help.
