Adjective endings

German grammar is known for being tricky and as for me, adjective endings is one of the most challenging parts of it. So I found this amazing table explaining every bit you should know to fully master them:

...habe ein lingot is an incomplete sentence. correct it would be "ich habe ein lingot" - i have a lingot (habe is 1. person sing) so it does not work if you want to give something away.

you can say: Da hast du ein lingot (resp: Da haben Sie ein lingot if you want to be formal) or better: Nimm ein lingot (take a lingot) (resp: Nehmen Sie ein lingot)

ich habe - i have

du hast- you have (informal sing)

er/sie/es hat - he/she/it has

wir haben -we have

ihr habt - you have (informal plural)

sie/Sie haben - they have / you have (formal sing+ pl.)

Danke :D And I think since Lingot is a loan word, it's neutral and so it should be ein Lingot

    Also, note that in that table the example about the tiger and the lion uses the wrong verb form. It should be bei├čt rather than bisst, which is a preterite form belonging to a different pronoun.
