  1. आप जाते हो |(aap jaaate ho) — you go

    Instead

    we can say ” aap jaaho or jaahiye ” ? is it right ?

    1. Both the sentences have different meanings.
      aap jaate ho = You go
      aap jayiye = You go (imperative form: as a request or order)

  2. Please, is there any difference between ‘ho’ and ‘hai’? Is it proper to say ‘aap jaaate hai’ just as ‘app jaaate ho’? It’s getting a bit confusing.

  3. In 5th line of the above introduction you mistakenly mentioned “-te hoon” instead of “-te ho”..please correct it…Thank you..!!
