why is it feminine in this case?
Kevin, in which case ?
Link is to the lesson, not a specific example.
It will be feminine - la tienne- whenever the ‘possession’ noun, whether for something physical or otherwise, is feminine grammatical gender and singular.
Maarten is correct.
Here are 2 examples:
Mon vélo est neuf. Et le tien ? = My bike is brand new. What about yours?
Cette voiture est superbe. C'est la tienne ? = This car is amazing. Is it yours?
A few examples with"le tien/etc" have now been added to the lesson.
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
ooops la tienne, typo
Thanks all I didn't know the example I was referring too wasn't linked - I'm too used to Duolingo where it is; which of course is much more helpful. That said I much prefer this course overall. I know all that has been pointed out; in the example to which I referred I couldn't determine why the answer assumed a feminine gender.
