That doesn't mean they don't exist. I saw many of them, fresh apples
Is सेब a masculine word? Is that why black is काला instead of काली this time? Is there a good resource for identifying masculine/feminine words for beginner Hindi learners? Thanks!
Yes, apples are men in Hindi! It helps to look at the endings of the adjectives or words for clues: feminine words are always followed by verbs/adjectives ending in ी irrespective of number (खिड़की बड़ी है, खिड़कियाँ बडी हैं) but the endings of verbs/adjectives change to े in the plural (क़िताब लम्बा है, क़िताबे लम्बे हैं).
