  5. Feminine or masculine? I dont…


Feminine or masculine? I dont understand

I answered that " my sister is a lawyer" with Mi hermana es un abogada. However the corrct answer was " Mi hermana es un abogada and Mi hermana es un abogado" i dont get it? Why would a feminine noun use a masculine noun?

I guess you have to report it. Actually, "My sister is a lawyer" is "Mi hermana es una abogada". Jamás puedes usar "un abogada". En resumen:

"Un abogado" - "Una abogada".
