How do you say "silvie talks to her friend" where the friend is male?
The personal pronoun is also "son". Therefore "you cannot say" is the correct answer! Non?
This question relates to:French lesson "Using "mon" rather than "ma" with feminine nouns starting with a vowel or mute h (possessive adjectives)"
Although the possessive adjective would be "son" in both cases, the noun would be different - "ami" instead of "amie". So you know the friend is a woman in this case. Of course they're both pronounced the same, so if it were spoken rather than written then "you cannot say" would be the correct answer.
Sylvie parle à son amie. (female)
Sylvie parle à son ami. (male)
