Why do we use this case here? And this verb? What rule should I use here?

Help with possessive pronouns

Postby phantasos » Aug 17th, 17, 06:49

здравствуйте!
I am trying to teach myself Russian and found a website that has some good activities. Currently I've been stuck on an activity with possessive pronouns. I've been working on this for a few days now and don't seem to understand what I'm getting wrong. I was wondering if someone can take a look at my answers below and tell me what I have wrong and why it is wrong. I've looked up each word in a Russian dictionary to see what is masculine, feminine, neutral and plural. I've been researching the last few days and still don't understand what I'm missing. Any help would be appreciated.
спасибо!

One mistake -- "новости". This noun is in plural form. Single is "новость", and it's fem.
