Ihre Kinder= Your kids.
Why not "her kids"?
That's also a valid translation for this sentence. Duolingo is currently having some problems meaning alternative translations are not accepted. The best you can do is report it.
Your (formal) children = Her children = Their children
I thought 'Ihre is 'her'??
Ihre kinder =your kinder but in formal Sie
This is really anoying. You have to memorzie, through trial and error, when Duolingo wants you to translate Ihre to Theirs/formal Yours or to Hers.
Please provide a hint or start accepting all valid translations.
research makes you remember things even better
It could mean "their" too, I guess?
Yes I believe. Their, her and your (formal) are all Ihre/Ihr at the start of the sentence so you can't tell. You have to guess based of the context
I think although 'Ihre' can mean also 'your' in a formal way, 'her' and 'their' should be included here as correct possible answers because I think there is no way to guess from the context. There is no context. Is that correct?
i also chose "their" and was incorrect. reported
why is "Her children" also correct? Is there no difference?
there is no
Her children was correct too
Their children? should be the correct answer
Is that "Ihre" meaning I'm speaking about more than one person?
It means more than one person you or a single she.
If you talk about the ending then again it means you speak about many objects (children) or one single feminine object.
Ihre and Deine mean the same thing? Or is one formal?
Sie has a roll as polite form for "your" so ihr ist true in polite form
