Teri aur tumhara? Hi! I am a little confused between the possession of teri or tumhara/i/e. They both seem to mean "your." Which do I use? Thank you!

The following three forms of possessive pronoun "your" are used in Hindi. Your = Aapkaa, Aapki, Aapke = used with elders or formal acquaintances.(Respectful/formal) Your = Tumharaa, Tumhari, Tumhare = Used with equals .(Informal) Your = Teraa, Teri, Tere = used with children, near and dear ones. (intimate) I believe, you should use "Aapkaa/i/e with elders and Tumharaa/i/e with friends and other peoples.

teri/a/e is more informal than tumhari/a/e. Aapki/a/e is formal.
