Spanish-Please check and clarify

posted by .

Could someone recheck this-I don't understand the two follow up answers because they seem to contradict each other-Maybe its the question or wording I'm confused about but I still don't understand if this is true or false. I thought it was false.I'm sorry to be so thick about this.

This is true or false

A possessive adjective is a descriptive word that tells whose something is

I think this is false because the possessive adjective describes the noun and not the person who has possession of the item.

"It is my book" describes who owns the book. (I do).

You can believe MattsRiceBowl!

It is our house. The fact that WE own it does not govern the adjective "our." (We might be a group of men, for example.) The fact that it is a house (feminine/singular) DOES. Es nuestra casa.

I'm sorry but I'm really still confused.I think according to what you're saying, the answer is false, correct because if WE doesn't govern the adjective our but it is the house because it is feminine and singular, correct. But according to Mattricebowl,he said who owns it describes it.It is my book(I do)so then its true, correct?
Or am I just not understanding something.
Maybe its the question or wording of the question I'm confused about

  • Spanish-Please check and clarify -

    Admittedly the wording is strange! The answer is YES/TRUE.

    A possessive adjective is a descriptive word that tells whose something is

    Restated: A possessive adjective (such as: my, your, his, her, its, our, their) is a descriptive word (all adjectives are descriptive words) that tells whose something is (this is the awkward part! = tells to whom something belongs.)

    Does that help?


  • Spanish-Thank you- -

    I finally get it-Thanks you for taking the time explain it to me again-I really appreciate
