When to use mein, meinen, meinem when describing the object position? I am confuse about nominative, akkusativ, dativ in describing the object position. For example, translation on my carpet lying below our chair.

Wohin hast du das Buch gelegt? Ich habe es auf den Tisch/aufs (auf das) Regal/auf die Couch gelegt. The subject is realized by Nom: du/ich The direct object is realized by Akk.: das Buch/es A question with 'wohin' must usually be answered using Akk.: auf den/das/die In the second case it is different, the thing is the subject (no person doing anything) Wo liegt das Buch? Es liegt auf dem Tisch/auf dem Regal/auf der Couch. Nom: das Buch/es The question with 'wo' must be always answered using Dat.: auf dem/der
