I am always confused with the pronouns. How would it be if I wanted to say "She gave him her jacket"?
In that case 'seine' (his) would be "ihre" (her).
Why not "she has given him his jacket"?
I am a bit confused here, this translates as "She gave him his jacket", but the word 'gegeben' is translated as 'thrown or added'. I do not understand how 'hat' would modify 'gegeben' to mean give. Can someone explain it to me?
The primary meaning of "hat gegeben" is "has given" or "gave".
Thank you, that helped.
I hope you reported this (I did)! I had it correct initially but changed my answer after hovering over "gegeben" which I hadn't come across before this.
I wrote "thrown him his coat" it was wrong. I was thinking of my hubby saying... Throw me my coat... As in give it to me!
why is this not correct: "she threw him his jacket"
I have reported it too. The Duo German course is usually picky on using the correct tense even when it is indifferent for the meaning
