What is the difference between खाऊंगा, खाओगा and खायेगा?

Hi, I was doing the future skill in Hindi, and I got one or two questions wrong because I got them mixed up, what is the actual difference?

You can have a look at my comment here

Basically, as shrikrishna1says, खाऊँगा is the masc. first-person form, खायेगा is the singular masc. third-person form and खाओगे (not खाओगा) is the masc. तुम-form.

खाओगा is not a word in Hindi.

खाऊंगा is "(I) will eat" (masculine)

खायेगा is "(He) will eat" (masculine)

खाऊंगाmeans "I will eat" खाओगा this form is not correct, at least I don't know खायेगा he/she will eat.

Thanks. Maybe खाओगा is "you will eat".

No, it is not. खाओगा is not a word in Hindi. Refer somewhere in the forum, I have given a note on it.

Yes, you are correct. खाओगा is not a word in Hindi. खाओगे is a word, meaning, "Will you eat?"

I’ve never learnt Hindi but I’d just like to say what a ‘joined’ language, it reminds me a little bit of musical notes. Like crotchets for example. I‘m completely clueless to how Hindi works so please forgive me. I just thought I’d point that out.

Hindi has grammatical cases. The words are modified to express something. "Case" is a linguistics term regarding a manner of categorizing nouns, pronouns, adjectives, participles, and numerals according to their traditionally corresponding grammatical functions within a given phrase, clause, or sentence.

There are only three cases in modern English, they are subjective (he), objective (him), and possessive (his), and they are restricted only to PERSONAL PRONOUNS. Refer to this: https://www.learnenglish.de/grammar/casetext.html#:~:text=There%20are%20only%20three%20cases,Yippee!

In Hindi also, there are three cases:

The direct case The oblique case The vocative case
