"They support both children."
Translation:Wspierają oboje dzieci.
Can someone explain when do you use "oba" and when "oboje"? It is very confusing.
"Oba" is used for neuter (most of them, but not here) and masculine non-personal nouns. "Obaj" for masculine personal. "Obie" for feminine. And "oboje" before nouns denoting people of mixed sex, personal and animate neuter nouns (of which there are few), and non-masculine personal pluralia tanta.
So we use "oboje" here, because "dzieci" is a mixed sex, personal and animate neuter noun in plural, right?
Well, specifically personal neuter. They may both be of the same sex, we don't know.
