Yep, although it doesn't work for all names, as some don't change with gender.
It seems to me that 'sue' can also be the possessive adjective for formal you (2nd personal singular), but they don't accept my answer here.
Only when the S in Sue is capitalized. Lowercase sue is third person possesive adjective.
I instinctively translated this as "the cook is drinking his beer" w/out really thinking (b/c it's a much more normal-sounding sentence)- and surprisingly, the system counted it as correct. Now I'm wondering WHY...?
I got marked correct with "the cook drinks his beer" which I think should have been wrong.
is the possessor of the beers, the same person as the cook in this context? For example I could say "my brother ties his shoelaces" or I could be indicating to my brother and say "my mother ties his shoelaces"
