"Which ones are your children?"
Translation:¿Cuáles son tus niños?
I wrote cualés unos son tus niños and it marked ne wrong. why do you drop the word ones ?
Because saying "Cuáles" is a form of saying which ones, so you don't have to input the word "ones".
How about "¿Cuáles son sus hijos?" (I wrote "¿quales son sus hijos?", and both quales and sus were marked wrong)
I put "Cuáles son sus niños: and it was marked as correct, Children are plural so I thought that the "es" on Cuál made it plural,and the plural "son". However, I made "your" plural therefore the "sus" because I was thinking I was talking to a couple.
As I understand it, Cuáles is correct but quales is not correct. It only sounds like a "q"
No, that is not the question. Niños is children. Hijos is sons or offspring of mixed gender. Offspring do not remain children forever. Sus should have been correct but not quales. This may be asking somebody who is in charge of watching children (teacher). It doesn't specify that the parent is being addressed, in which case they would without a doubt be 'hijos'.
I put ¿Cuáles son vuestros niños? and it marked me wrong, saying that "niños is plural, not masculine." I have no idea what that is supposed to mean, and I do not understand why it marked me wrong.
Okay, this is what I get:
The children are plural, they are the subject of the sentence, so everything in the sentence is plural as it is referring to the children. Consider rephrasing the sentence in English, and it's easier to see how the words relate: Which children are yours?
"Cuáles" is plural because it is asking about the children. Which children.
"Son" is the plural conjugate for he/she/it/they, because, again, it is the children who are doing the action. Which children are.
"Tus" is the plural possessive form of you, because it is describing who owns the children. If it was "Which ones are her children", the her would be sus. … Consider the possessive pronoun to act similarly to an article. El libro. Los libros. Mi libro. Mis libros. Un libro. Unos libros. Tu libro. Tus libros. (It is also why the gender of nuestro and nuestra is related to the gender of the item being possessed, not the gender of the possessor…. Our (nuestro/a) is acting like an article.) So tus in this sentence is plural because the children are plural. Tu hijo. Tus hijos.
You are correct, except sus also means “your" formal (tú vs Ud.) Sus is correct.
No, that would be, "Which children are you?" because "eres" means "you are." It shows no possession.
Would "¿Cuáles niños son tus?" be an acceptable alternative?
This is similar to asking "Which children are yours?". It is essentially the same question.
"Cuáles son vuestras niñas".
Told me i was wrong... but i think it's Correct.
