26Just to clarify… The possessive adjective always agrees with the NOUN, not the person that it belongs to.In other words, a man would say mon livre, and a woman would also say mon livre because the book is masculine (le livre).Likewise, both men and women would say ma trousse, because pencilcase is feminine in French - it doesn't matter whether the owner of the pencilcase is male or female.
