The ke is directing attention the ball. Which of the balls do you want? would be the correct trans. O kinipõpõ hea would be the proper arrangement for the translation Which ball. Wouldnt it?

I thought "kou" meant "your" or "yours", how come it's used in this context instead of 'oe?

I sort of read it as "your desire/want".

I started out with "Makemake 'oe." On the basis of a previous "Do you like vegetables or fruits," I wonder if the sense of the English could also be expressed as "Makemake 'oe i kēia kinipōpō a i 'ole kēlā kinipōpō?
