    seus/seus = before masculine nouns. O seu filho é bonito (Your son is handsome.).
    sua/suas = before feminine nouns. A sua filha é bonita (Your daugther is beautiful.).

    teu/teus = seu/seus. Teu/teus used is more common in some brazilian regions
    tua/tuas = sua/suas. Idem

    O tal = such. Without regard to previous ones.
