Possession

whose it is masc singular, or starts with vowel feminine singular plural
my mon ma mes
your ton ta tes
his son sa ses
her son sa ses
our notre notre nos
your votre votre vos
their leur leur leurs

 

 The version of the possessive pronoun that you use (my – their) depends on the number and the gender of the possessed item.  
    For example;
My house – house is feminine – so one uses the feminine singular form of ‘my’ – ma maison
Our dad – dad is masculine – so one uses the masculine singular form of ‘our’ – notre père
Her truck – truck is masculine – so one uses the masculine singular form of ‘her’ – son camion
Your books – books are plural – so one uses the plural version of ‘your’ – tes livres
