Masculine/Feminine Gender in Dutch?

 

On another language website I submitted the following:

1. De auto is niet geel. Het is silverkleurig.
2. De bloem is niet oranje. Het is paars.
3. De munt is niet van silver. Het is van goude.
4. De boom is niet oranje. Het is groen.
5. Het huis is niet blauw. Het is rood.
6. De handtas is niet wit. Het is zwart.

The following was given to me as a correction:

1. De auto is niet geel. Hij is zilverkleurig.
2. De bloem is niet oranje. Zij is paars.
3. De munt is niet van zilver. Hij is van goud.
4. De boom is niet oranje. Hij is groen.
5. Het huis is niet blauw. Het is rood.
6. De handtas is niet wit. Hij is zwart don't forget Shannon that we have three genders in our language

Is this Flemish? Or is this really done in regular Dutch? How would I know the masculine/feminine genders if I only learn them as common and neuter?

    This is Dutch. Flamish and Dutch are pretty similar but only some words are different.
    You can compare it with English from England and English from the USA.

    The main important thing is that you know the differences between common and neuter words.
    There are some rules whether a word is feminin or masculin e.g. organisations are in general feminin.
