In Italian, suo is a possessive adjective that agrees in gender and number with the noun it refers to. For example, 'il suo libro' means 'his book' if the owner is male, while 'la sua casa' means 'her house' if the owner is female. If the object being possessed is plural, then the adjective takes on the plural form as well, such as in 'i suoi amici' which means 'his friends'.

Suo can also be used as a reflexive pronoun to indicate that someone is doing something to themselves. For example, 'si lava i capelli con il suo shampoo' means 'he/she washes his/her hair with their own shampoo'. In this case, suo agrees in gender and number with the subject of the sentence.

It's important to note that suo is not always interchangeable with the English possessive pronouns 'his', 'her', 'its', or 'their'. In some cases, Italian uses different possessive adjectives depending on the context or level of formality. For example, instead of saying 'il suo padre' (his father), one might say 'suo padre' to show familiarity or closeness.
