Why isn't it जाती since Julia and Neha are both girls?

This sentence is wrong. They should have used जाती हैं. Please report it.

I believe that you still pluaraize for two different female entities. What I mean is that if it was a group of girls, you would say लड़कियाँ जाती हैं, because there is one noun here (girls). Alternately, if you said girls and women go, I think it would be: लड़कियाँ और औरतें जाते हैं. It would be nice if a mother tongue Hindi speaker could confirm.

Asked a native speaker and he agrees with this. So if it is explicitly two separately named things or people, use जाते even though each thing or person on its own in a sentence world use जाती. The girl/girls example both use जाती since you are still naming one collective unit.

Note to DUO: Please correct the Hindi sentence.

Julia and Neha - two feminine names - plural. "Jaate" - masculine verb plural. "Jaatee" - feminine verb plural. Can't understand why "jaatee" is incorrect for Duo. An explanation will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I thought the verb should be plural since it refers to two people going.
