I'm also a beginner, so bear with me please. I think that "ka" is for masculine and "ki" is for feminine objects. So in the phrase "Raj's school", you'd look at the noun "school" and figure out it's gender. School must be masculine, cos the answer here says "ka" (guessing backwards).
Btw, it would be really nice if a native speaker could confirm!
On how to determine gender: https://hindilanguage.info/hindi-grammar/nouns/gender/. At my basic level, all I'll remember is that: - many masc. words end with आ - many fem. words with ई
Please support a feature request to Duo that we see the gender of each word in the hints.
And a short note on nettiquette: dunno why someone downvoted your post - it's a question and all new questions are good!
It´s an interesting question. The French have tried "policing" since the 16th century. For example, there´s a quota on how many anglicisms can be used in radio shows. Of course it hasn´t worked completely, but I think it´s given their language police some influence on the form of anglicisms that are converted into French.
