"the dog and the cat"
Translation:der Hund und die Katze
hundin is not a German word.
"the dog" can be der Hund (the normal word) or die Hündin (specifically a female dog) -- note the umlaut, and the fact that the two words have different genders, and that the nouns are capitalised in German.
Something like die Hund or das Hündin does not work, either.
If you can't type ü, use ue instead rather than just dropping the dots. (You can'l simply drop the line lhrough lhe leller l eilher, can you? :D)
What was your entire answer? Where did you use der, where did you use die?
"the dog and the cat" is der Hund und die Katze.
You will need both der and die -- der before Hund because that word is grammatically masculine, and die before Katze because that word is grammatically feminine.
If you used die Hund or der Katze, it would be wrong -- the gender of the article would not match the gender of the noun.
Also, I'm not sure what you mean with "your own table" -- do you mean the hints that appear when you hover over a word with the mouse or tap on the word?
The hints are not specific to a particular sentence, and may contain translations that are only valid in other sentences.
Usually, the system tries to order the hints so that the topmost one is appropriate for the current sentence, but it can get confused there so that's not completely reliable, either.
In particular, if the same word has to be translated two different ways in the same exercise (as with "the" here which has to be der once and die once), the order of the hints may be the same, even though you need a different translation in each case.
The hints are not meant to imply that you can use either der or die -- at random -- as a translation of "the" wherever that word appears.
You'll probably be understood, but of course it's not usually correct.
Much as you'd be understood if you always use -ed to form the past tense in English if you don't know the proper form -- if you say, "I comed here, readed the newspaper, eated some food, and then goed away again", for example.
The dog always count male?
der Hund is always grammatically feminine.
what about the female dogs what they called?
You can call them "a female dog" (ein weiblicher Hund).
There is also a word die Hündin specifically for a female dog and der Rüde specifically for a male dog. But when the gender of the dog is not relevant, then you can simply use der Hund.
And base on comments katze is female kater is male right?
Nearly -- the correct spellings are Katze and Kater with capital K.
die Katze is grammatically feminine and is the generic word.
der Kater is grammatically masculine and means "tomcat", i.e. specifically a male cat where you consider the gender relevant.
