"This dress is owned by my little sister."

Translation:Gaun ini dimiliki oleh adik perempuanku.

Surely "Gaun ini dimiliki oleh adik perempuan saya" should be accepted? In fact, is it not more appropriate than the given answer, because 'adik' could refer to either a brother or sister?


I thought the perempuan was unnecessary. The dress is unlikely to be owned by a younger brother, but if it were, then the gender clarification would be appropriate.
