What is the difference between ki and ka ? Is की female and का male ?


Ki and ka are used depending on the person or object they are referring to. If the object or person is feminine, you use ki while if it's masculine, you use ka.

Example - Peter's sister - Peter ki bahan

Here we would always use "ki" because the word sister is feminine. So it doesn't matter whose sister we talk about, we will always use "ki".

Olivia's house - Olivia ka ghar

Here "ka" refers to ghar(house). Since ghar is masculine in Hindi, we will always use "ka".


Peter's house - Peter ka ghar

Sarah's house - Sarah ka ghar

You just have to remember that ki/ka is not being decided by the subject. The house(ghar) could belong to a male or female but we would always use "ka" because house(ghar) is considered masculine in Hindi.

What is feminine and masculine is it mean female and male


Correct. beti is female, so it requires ki.


Do का and की depend on objects instead of subjects?
