"The cook has the butter."
Translation:Il cuoco ha il burro.
well i think, for he, she and it "ha" is used. For I "ho". Example: "Io ho ..." , "lei ha ..." , "il ragazzo ha..."
Ha is refering to someone in the 3rd person. Like Batuhan ha il burro. Ho is refering to first person. Like Io ho il burro.
I read somewhere that you use "ho" for io or I in English and you use "ha" for lei/lui or she/he in English.
'Il' is the, usually for a male word. 'La' is for female. 'Le' is for plural females, so it would be 'la donna', 'le donne', 'il ragazzo'. And for plural males you use 'gli', like in 'gli uomini'.
It's like this : io ho, tu hai, lui/lei ha, noi abbiamo, voi avete, loro hanno. But it seems Duolingo only teaches us : ho and ha
