Why not पड़ते ??

The boy reads लड़का पढ़ता है laRka paRta he

The boys read लड़के पढ़ते हैं laRke paRte heN

The girl reads लड़की पढ़ती है larki paRti he

the girls read लड़कियों पढ़ती हैं laRkiyaN paRti heN

Masculine singular paRta becomes paRte in masculine plural But it remains the same in feminine in both singular and plural paRti

However, he है is the same for both masculine and feminine singular. And हैं with a dot, heN (nasal) also remains the same with both masculine and feminine. है and हैं depicts the number and the suffix of the main verb depicts the gender. a for male i for female.

Thanks for this, it can be hard to pick up on these gender patterns doing one example at a time.

I typed "लड़कियॉं पढ़ती है " using the keyboard (Google Input Tools). The word "लड़कियॉं" is marked as wrong word. Why?
