"Der Dativ ist dem Genitiv sein Tod." - Bastian Sick As a native German speaker, I decided to create this quiz about the Genitive case, the last and probably be the most difficult one of the four cases. I am doing this because, unfortunately, the case is slowly dying out, as more and more people tend to use Dative instead, and thus making sentences that would have been considered incorrect only two hundred years ago perfectly acceptable, although they do sound much less thoughtful, and you should therefore never use them in texts. An alternative is the Genitive case, sounding formal, and just plain beautiful. The usage of this case will make your essays sound like written by native speakers, and your conversations better. So why not test your knowledge?
