What would "Peter plays the game" look like? Since खेल is both singular and plural I am having a hard time understanding how to distinguish.
All the other sentences I was answering with "sits/stands/..." And it was always counted wrong, although I think it is a valid option. This time I wrote "Peter is playing games." because I got used to and now this is wrong. :-(
Namaste! I think the verb declension is right. The Hindi verb खेलता is masculine and singular. And, the direct declension of the noun, singular or plural, is खेल. But, the Hindi verb खेलते is plural.
So, I think, the sentence is:
पीटर (Peter) खेल (games) खेलता है (plays) | / Peter plays games.
Verb declension of खेलना (khelnā, “to play”), from Wiktionary:
खेल is not changed in plural and the verb खेलता refers to the singular person पीटर, not the plural games.
