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

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

Quoting JNQ

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

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

Hangisi means which of them as JNQ wrote, -si is the equivelant of "of" in Turkish.

yes think of it as which (specific) one of them / which of theirs / them

(onların) hangisi

onlar-ın hangi-s-i
