Maybe this is somewhere else, but I was wondering what happens if you have a group with both boys and girls? Would you say Ellos son niños because there are boys in the group?
Yes. In a group, if there's even one boy / male, the description uses the male form.
I used the word hijos for children which was "scored" as incorrect. Hijos is another word for children according to The New World Spanish/English Dictionary published by the Penguin Group.
Ellas is feminine, as is niñas. Ellos is masculine, as is niños. Therefore:
Ellos son niños, y ellas son niñas.
If it is both boys & girls then it would be the masculine form (Ellos son niños.)
Do we use "son" in both cases of "Ellas" and "Ellos"? Or there is any difference?
When do you use somos and when son? I Keep messing up and I don't know the rule.
