"He likes my balls" is also correct

'She' would also be correct, then, by the way..

Actually, ball(bola) here still refers to normal ball to play(like soccer, ect.)

Indonesian use 'biji'(seed) instead to refer testicle

How special is your ball?

Is there any difference between "saya" and "ku" when it comes to saying "my"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Klokwerktweets

I learned that saya is more formal then ku and aku.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/setijoso

yup just formality.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MervinPalguna

In very formal context saya is more appropriate.

she likes my balls O_O the things i have down there are also called bola?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/justmagicalgirl

Actually in Indonesian they're called "biji"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tod_Death

Does being voted down mean "no"? A proper answer to the question would be nice. More formal: could the phrase "bola" refer to testicles?

Why i say "She" and I'm incorrect
