Essential Italian Lesson 5, Work out 2

edited January 2016 in Italian
I am confused on item 4 of this exercise. It says: "La sua nipote è di Roma"  to be changed to the plural "Le sue nipoti sono di Roma" I don't understand why the singular version has the  "La" I am probably completely off base. I would be grateful if someone would straighten me out. Thanks.


  • Dear Julie,

    You understood the use of the possessive adjectives correctly. The exercise should say "Sua nipote è di Roma." "La sua nipote è di Roma" can be heard in spoken language in Italy, but the first version is definitively more accurate!
