"È il suo, non il mio."

Thanks for the comment! Careful, "suo" is for masculine nouns. This means that "her dog" is still "il suo cane" because cane is masculine. "His cake" would be "la sua torta". The possessive adjective changes according to what is possessed, not who possesses it.

Thanks a lot for making this clear.

Couldn't it also be yours (formal )?

Seems like hers/his/yours should all be valid answers.

Yes. This appears to be an issue for all questions involving "suo" at the moment. I really hope they fix it soon!
