sa

Correct Answer: 
Yes

son

Correct Answer: 
No

ses

Correct Answer: 
No

sienne

Correct Answer: 
No

Choice (A) is correct. Chemise (shirt) is a singular feminine noun. In French, the possessive adjective agrees in gender and number with the noun it modifies, not with the subject of the sentence; here the adjective modifies chemise. Choice (A), sa (agreeing with a singular feminine noun), correctly completes the sentence. Choice (B), son (his), is used with a singular masculine noun and choice (C), ses (his), is used with plural nouns whether masculine or feminine. Choice (D), sienne (his), is a possessive pronoun for a singular feminine noun.
