  5. "My mother is going."

"My mother is going."

Translation:मेरी माँ जा रही हैं ।

September 30, 2018



Hi all, why is it हैं instead of है? Thought it should be मेरी माँ जा रही है । as है is "is". Thanks.


मेरी माँ जा रही हैं is the plural (and more respectful) form. मेरी माँ जा रही है is the singular (and less respectful) form.

However, I'm not sure that मेरी माँ जा रही है is technically incorrect, since मेरी is both the singular and plural feminine form.
