    Third Form help please!

    Can someone help me with a Third Form question? On lesson 4 worksheet 5 drill D; #10 is masculine while 7-9 are feminine. The subjects are all non specific pronouns (to, cos, ego, nos and the Perfect passive participle is Laudatus a um.

    Thank you!!!!

    Hello,

    When your subject is a personal pronoun like ego or tu, the gender of the participle is up to context. If we knew who was speaking, it would either be masculine for certain or feminine for certain. As it is, either one works... unless having a certain ending conflicts with the provided being verb.

    Hope this helps,
    - Jon

      Yes it does. So those homework specific questions could be Masculine or feminine and still be correct? Also I apologize for all of the auto corrects in my post above! Thankfully you understood me!
      To be clear as I go forward, students can practice using either or unless it’s clear from the passage?

        Ok, I think I get how I confused myself unnecessarily!!! A student had a question and then the nature of that particular exercise had me mixed up but I see what I did!! Thank you for clarifying.
