What is the difference between unke and uske?
Uske: his/her, unke: their. Uske paas: he/she has, unke paas: they have
Yes but "UNKE " is also used for formal he/she.
Yes, the formal in most cases is the plural
Unke is used for politeness mostly for adults elders and strangers....while uske we can use for our friends or people we know close to our age and smaller than us...hope it was helpful
Would a sentence like this (with कई) be able to take the alternative form of possession, i.e. could I say "उसके कई कुत्ते हैं।" (without the पास)?
I did so and it was correct
What's the difference with and without पास?
I'm told 'paas' is usually used for having things, not having people (sons, daughters).
In the sentence "He has seven sons" they dont use पास in Hindi. Why do they use it here
"He has seven sons" can be said both ways — with "paas" and without.
EDIT: Never mind, a Duo lesson stated that the "paas" form is generally used for things, not people.
Why is the हैं in plural form?
because it relates to "dogs". this sentence roughly translates as "by her many dogs are".
How do you type the word for "dogs"? I was marked incorrect for कुते.
It looks like maybe there's something weird going on with the त.
it's a double त in the form of a conjunct
Your spelling looks fine, are you sure there wasn't something else wrong?
no, the spelling is not fine, it should be त्त, not त
Good spot, didn't notice that.
