Hangisi means ´which of them´, ´whichever´.

The -(s)i is in this case a possesive adjective and means ´his´ or ´its´.

I saw Birincisi and do─črusu. Why we add -(si)?

I saw Birincisi and do─črusu. Why we add -(si)?

 

We add -si because we need these words to have possessive suffix. Biricisi actually means first of them, do─črusu means truth of them.
