What's the difference between, 'this cat is yours', and 'this is your cat'?
Nah you're right, "This is your cat" should also be acceptable, it's the same thing.
I agree. That was my answer and it was rejected.
This cat is yours => Kucing ini (adalah) punya kamu
This is your cat => Ini adalah kucing kamu
is there a difference in the meaning in Indonesian? I do not see a difference in the meaning in English. What I am questioning is, is there a difference in the idea?
The difference is in the structure. '-ku' (my) is a possessive determiner and 'punyaku' (mine) is possessive pronoun.
Sama aja artinya
Surely "this cat belongs to you" should also be accepted?
Why is "this cat's yours" not accepted?
I think because "cat's" is possessive in itself, as in belonging to the cat
Why is This is your cat a mistake?
There is NO difference between this is your cat and this cat is yours.
