"The child eats bread."
अनुवाद:बच्चा ब्रेड खाता है।
Yes, it could refer to both a male and a female. But in English, there is no distinction between a 'male child' and a 'female child' like you have in Hindi, that is 'बच्चा' for a male and 'बच्ची' for a female. Generally, you would know whether you are talking about a boy or a girl, depending on the situation. If not, it can mean either a boy or a girl. There's no definite way to identify.
