How do I know when to add a Definite article? For example here the translation 'sombrero de ella' is incorrect since one should add a definite article before the word Sombrero (hat)
Since there is possession in this phrase, it is necessarily referring to a specific hat. That creates the need for a definite article.
su is his or hers and comes before the noun. Suyo is plural and comes after the noun.
I said "su sombrero" which was wrong and received "Su gorra" as the correct answer...can anybody help with this?
Gorra = cap (peaked cap) from my dictionary. I used su sombrero and got it right.
