If you want to make a question related to possession, when is it preferable to use Чей/Чья ...? and when is it better to use Кого...? ? Are both options grammatically correct?

Thank you!

Чей/чья is the only one you can use here. Кого in a possession-related question would be as much of a solecism as "of whom" instead of "whose".

  • You may still see this form in the old books, such as those written by Gogol. – Baskakov_Dmitriy Jan 20 '17 at 9:35
