As explained above, you would use honesto to describe a masculine noun but honesta to describe a feminine one.

You'll find that this is often the case - adjectives ending in 'o' for masculine and 'a' for feminine.

The only way you could use honesta to describe a man is if you said él es una persona honesta - he is an honest person (because person is feminine) wink

I think it depends HOQ YOU USE HONESTO.. You should use "honesto" to describe A MASCULINE PERSON, and "honesta" to describe FEMALES.

I think it depends on which pronouns you use "honesto" to describe. You should use "honesto" to describe muscular pronouns, and "honesta" to describe feminine pronouns.

Por favor alguien me puede corregir.

Gracias,

Generally you if the noun is female you change the word.

So:

El gato Tranquillo-The quiet cat

La Cabra Tranquilla-The quiet Goat

I know that most masculine words that end in "O" or Feminine that end in "A", that you change the O or A, to match.

"honesto" es used as an adjetive.
if you use "honesto" for describing a female , then you must say ¨honesta¨

she is honest "ella es honesta"
he is honest "él es honesto"

if you want to apply to men and women
( She or He) is honest person. "Es una persona honesta." (puede ser hombre o mujer).
