"My cake is black."
Translation:Mon gâteau est noir.
It is determined by the gender of the noun you are possessing. Mon for masculin, Ma for feminin
You do not need to put an article in front of a possessive noun? I put "du gateau" and no article was required - can anyone help clarify this?
Various determiners can be placed in front of a noun: an article, a number, a possessive adjective, a demonstrative adjective, an interrogative adjective, an exclamatory adjective.
But they are alternative. In other words, no article if you have already another determiner.
un biscuit (masculine) = a biscuit (noir)
un gâteau = a cake
un cake = a cake (specific shape, like a fruit cake for ex)
When should i use "mon" and When I should use "ma"? And also" son" and "sa" ....?
"mon" means "my" in front of a masculine noun: mon gâteau (masculine singular)
"ma" means "my" in front of a feminine noun starting with a consonant : ma pomme (feminine singular)
"mon" replaces "ma" when a feminine noun starts with a vowel sound: mon amie (feminine singular)
In front of any plural noun, "my" is "mes".
The same pattern goes for "ton, ta, tes" (your) and "son, sa, ses" (his or her)
