Hi, I realize that you probably don't need the answer to this question for your assignment anymore. I'm sorry I wasn't around to help you with it a few hours ago. But here, let me explain it for you anyway, so that you'll understand how to do questions like it, for next time. What I see here is one blank, that we have to fill in, using a "Stressed Possessive Adjective." I'll show you the different Stressed Possessive Adjectives in Spanish, and their meanings: Mío/Mía --- Mine Tuyo/Tuya --- Yours Suyo/Suya --- His/Hers/Theirs Nuestro/Nuestra --- Ours ~~~~~~~~~~ Let's look at the question that we had to fill in: "Oye, Arturo. ¿Es esa corbata tuya?" "No, no es _________. Es de Javier." It means, "Hey, Arturo. Is this tie yours?" "No, it's not _______. It's Javier's." So, we need to fill in the blank with the Spanish word for "mine." Now, we have ""No, no es mía. Es de Javier." Do you see how we used "mía" and not "mío"? We have to use "mía" because here, they're talking about a "corbata," which is a FEMININE noun, and not masculine. ("Corbata" is also a SINGULAR noun, so we use "mía" instead of "mías.") ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ So, the next times you have to fill in a Spanish word for... Mine, Yours, Theirs, or Ours, just look at your choices. They're easy to remember.
