what is the difference between "Eure" and "Ihre" anybody knows??

"eure" - informal; "Ihre" - formal

Why not 'Deine Kinder'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AnaMariaFlorea

"Deine" is for a sg person, "Ihre" Is a formal pronoun, "Eure" is formal and is for plural (2 persons or more)

I am getting confused. The gender of the pronoun is dependent on the noun right?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AnaMariaFlorea

Yes, right! ich- I, du- you, er- he, sie-she, es- it, for singular pronoun, wir- we, ihr- you, sie- they, for plural pronoun, Sie - formal form- you

Doesn't euer and eure mean the same?

I had to type it after hearing, it's a little harsh to not accept both.
