You are right. b. मैं अपना नाम जानती हूँ । I know my name. Hindi has a special possessive pronoun, अपना, meaning 'one's own' which must be used when the subject of a sentence and the processor are the same. Like all other processive pronouns, अपना changes to reflect the gender and number of the thing possessed.
