    You or Your?

    Which one of the following two is correct, please? (I'd guess #2 is correct.)

    1) Your father told me about you buying a new house in China.

    2) Your father told me about your buying a new house in China.

    the second one is BETTER than the first one. but you'd better say:
    your father told me about your new house in china.
    or:
    your father told that you've bought a new house in china.

    Hello everyone,

    The sentence could also mean like this:

    - Your father told me about your plans of buying a new house in China.

    This is only correct if the house in the sentence has not been bought yet. Am I correct?

    I think the first sentence is more sensible.For the second one,you may use Matilda's examples, or you may say, "Your father told me that you are going to buy a new house in China".
