Report it as a problem with the hints. It should hint under Juma that it's a male name.
The hint was extented to "Juma (male name)". Hence, the (word by word) translation of "jina lake" can be only "(the) name his" and not "(the) name her". (8-Jul-2018)
In real life you would know based on the context. Here, in this course, you just have to guess.
I only just saw the difference, was sat here just guessing whether to say his/her or you :D thanks!
"Jina lake ni Juma". "Jina" means name. "lake" is the equivalent to the possesives his, her or hers. "ni" is the conjugation of the verb "to be" in present. "Juma" is a masculine name.
The literal translation would be: "Name his is Juma", and when we make use of the English grammar it turns into "His name is Juma". "Lake" turns to "his" because Juma is masculine.
There's no difference for his and hers. It's all in the name, and Juma is a male name
Same comment for me. Juma can be a female or a male. "Her" or "his" are good answers
Litteraly a second ago I had to translate "Her name is Juma" into swahili and now in this one is "His"
