"The horse uses its tail" should be allowed.
haar = her
his/its = zijn
Why cant i say the horse use its tail? (Its wrong)
Third person singular = uses
Isn't zijn = him? https://www.duolingo.com/comment/3732923
zijn = his (both for he and it)
Zijn has two different meanings. The verb "zijn" means "are" for plural. The pronoun "zijn" means "his/its". Remember the sentence from earlier: Zij zijn zijn zoons. - They are his sons. The first "zijn" is "are" the second one is "his".
In this listening exercise, the word "gebruikt" really sounds more like "gebraakt" - it sounds like the long "aa" vowel.
Is there a way to spot the difference in pronunciation?
Why would, "The horses uses it's tail." be wrong?
It's means 'it is'! It should be 'its' to insicate possession.
And most of all, it's "het paard" and not "de paarden".
gebruikt is not past tense ?
it is just a hunch.
Gebruikt simply means uses, the full verb for to use is gebruiken.
