Hi, in lesson 4.9.

la vostra amica e bellissima is translated as your friend is beautiful. Why is not la tua amica since we are only talking about a singular person?

Thanks

Gary

Hi Gary, 

In this case the speaker says "vostra" as she is talking to a group of people rather than to one person. The person she is referring to in the conversation (amica) is friend with multiple people, not just one person. If she were friend with just one person, the speaker would have said "la tua amica".

This module has additional information on possessive adjectives.

Let me know if you need more help! :)
