As far I understand, the former refers to "those" whereas the latter refers to "these". They indicate proximity to the subject.
that or this, can also be used for those and these. Please see my answer to Sarah941553 above.
Audio: Vhay khon hai? - Who is the same? Correct Solution: Voh lohg khon hai? - Who are they? This sentence is incorrect. Believe me, I speak Hindi.
I disagree, (An Urdu speaker here learning Hindi script). The sentence is correct.. ve kaun haiN . haiN हैं denotes plural and you need not add lohg in the sentence at all. lohg is an altogether different word and you sentence ve log kaun haiN would mean who are those people. lohg means people.
I'm confused, Duolingo accepted "Who are they" for both "ये कौन हैं" and "वे कौन हैं".... Is there a difference? Ziyan819860 mentioned that he doesnt believe the sentence makes sense at all, and this really disappoints me as I want to be understood when I'm India and not make a fool of myself :-(
There is a big difference between ये (this) and वे (that) .
"ये कौन हैं" Who are these? ये is used for both this, it, these.
वे कौन हैं" Who are those? वे is used for that and those.
