"Tell your name."
Translation:अपना नाम बताओ।
I am in doubt with using apna. Would be "tera nam batao" wrong? I am not sure when to use apna. I learned to ask "Tera nam kya hai". Do I have to say "Apna nam kya hai". Please help.
It has to do with the subject being the doer to something that belongs to him or herself. I see my brother. She talks to her mother. They give their teacher a gift. In these cases we us a form of apna, because the thing following the word apna is a thing that refers to the subject here. So, in your question, "tera nam batao" it is wrong because the person has to say his or her own name. When we ask "what is your name?" we don't use apna because the verb is "is", and doesn't have as a subject the person "YOU". Hope this helps.
If you use the word "tell" then you have to use a pronoun or a person after it. Tell me, tell her, tell the teacher, etc.
So, What are the differences between बताओ और बोलो? And please give insights on how to use them in the right cases??
