Hi Jamie,


Thanks for answering the question!


Your response is almost perfect. Just one minor change. Replace "meri" with "mere". Like this,


Mere pass ek aayiphone 8 hai.


All the best!

Hi Abdulrahman,


Thanks for your question.


If you break down "aapako", you get "aap" (you) and "ko" (to). If you break down "aapake", you get "aap" (you) and "ke" (of). So, mostly "aapako" would be for "to you" and "aapake" would be for "your".


All the best!

Hello, when do you use " kya aapko " or " kya aapke " or any other similar words if there is... does it depend on the gender or what?

Thank you for the help! Great Site!
