Does the first "her," have an e on the end because Mutter is feminine?


So, "Her father and her mother," would be, "Ihr Vater und ihre Mutter?“


And it's posesive article. And then it's declined as Nominativ because it's only enunciating a list of items.


The German reuse of words in different parts of speech is really difficult for me. "Ihr" can be second-person plural pronoun, third-person feminine possesive, formal second-person possessive, or third-person feminine dative. Same sort if thing for "ein" and "sie". I hope Duo is basing this on actual usage, not on abstract educational goals.
