(They) told the (children) the (stories) they had heard (themselves).

They - collective
children - collective? dual?
stories - stories
themselves - collective

    Are you sure you're being asked about gender?

    Here's a section on collective nouns:

    And here's one on collective adjectives:

    To me, though, all these forms in parentheses are simply plurals. The last one is plural and reflexive.

    YesYes. The question original is: Indicate the case, person, number and gender of the bracketed words. I only have trouble with indicating the gender.

    Thanks!

    My other friend with the same assignment put dual for all of them.

    In English, none of those has a gender.
