sin fina klocka

in this sentence "Han gillar sin fina klocka" why is "fina" used and not "fin"? Because "klocka" is singular obestämt form, so shouldn't it be "Han gillar sin fin klocka"?

    Good question. I'm not sure about the particular grammatical rule used here. But whenever you use a possessive noun the adjective is the same as for plural.

    Hundens lena päls
    (hunden har len päls)
    Mitt snälla barn
    (ett snällt barn)
    Bollens röda färg
    (en röd boll)

    Menade du: för att det är bestämd form - sin fina - min fina

    for it is given shape - sin fina
