"The apple and the pineapple."
Translation:Το μήλο και ο ανανάς.
The genders do not refer to the actual person or thing. They are just grammatical terms.
So, in Greek a "pineapple" can be masculine, an a "chair" is feminine but a "boy" is neuter.
Sometimes they are logical but basically you just need to learn the gender of each word. You'll find this in other languages as well.
