Even if it is a girl (her) you still side with the gender and quantity of the noun.... which in this example (socks) is masculine and plural.
the noun 'sock' is masculine. It's only feminine if it's a knee sock. The sentence says, 'sock, not knee sock. The posessive takes the gender of that which is posessed, not the posessor.
"grey" is the British English spelling, and "gray" is the American English spelling of the same word.
Calzetti e calzini sono la stessa cosa, siamo sicuri che il corso è stato creato da un madrelingua italiano?
When the comments are in Italian, those still learning have no idea what was said!!!
No, it's feminine. It follows almost all the same endings as the articles. «il, lo, i, gli» are masculine articles, so the masculine possessives are «il suo, i suoi». The feminine articles are «la, le», so the feminine possessives are «la sua, le sue».
