"The rats are in the book."
Translation:चूहे किताब में हैं ।
Hindi speaker here.... Well, the placement of the words depends on what is the prime focus of the conversation.
For example If I am asking: Chuhe kahan hain? The answer would be: Chuhe kitab me hain.
But if I ask: Kitab me kya hai? The answer would be: Kitab me chuhe hain.
I hope this makes things a little clearer.
