Yo = necesito Tu = necesitas Él/ella/usted = necesita Nosotros = necesitamos Ellos/ellas/ustedes = necesitan
This pretty much works for a lot of words. Except with él/ella/usted, the words will sometimes end in an e instead of a. Thibking about it this way, has really helped on my language journey.
Because "the boy" is third person (He/She/It) and in Spanish, for singular 3rd person the verbs are ending in "A". For the first person in "O" and for the second in "AS/ES". So we have "yo necesito, tu necesitas, El/ella/el necesita". Hope it helps. -- PS. The verbs don't have gender.
Necesito = Yo (first person. i remember it using the fact that they both end in O) (Yo necesito dinero) Necesita = third person/señor, señora, señorita (Él necesita dinero) (Señora, ¿usted necesita un taxi?) Necesitas = second person/informal (Bruno, ¿tu necesitas dinero?) This is just what I've picked up, feel free to correct or clarify
No. "Necesito" is a verb and verbs don't have gender. It depends on who you are referring to. If it's you (1st person "I need") then it's "necesitO". If it's your friend and you want to say "YOU need" then it's "necesitAS" and if it's someone else (3rd person "HE/SHE/IT needs") then it's "necesitA". It has been answered million times if you read the other comments.
