    Thanks for doing this to me !

    Дяанис фрииман смотрела в её шкафе.

    Janice Freeman looked into her closet.

    Perfective aspect, prepositional case (into her closet), there are three endings for neuter (closet) е,и, ие.

    closet means шкаф

    So shall I add е, и, ие ?

    Yes, it depends on the context. I put it as if she was a spy, looking for something in someone's house.
    Also: "... посмотрела в своём шкафу"

    Thanks everyone. So you added 'у' because Janice Freeman was a she? Because I went through my grammar book, it was correct if you based the y on Janice, a she. And also translationsnmru was also right if the subject was a masculine noun. Thanks too translatiosnmru!

    Он посмотрел в своём шкафу. Она посмотрела в своём шкафу. Я посмотрел в своём шкафу. Они посмотрели в своём шкафу. OR if it's plural - в своих шкафах. It doesn't depend on the pronouns used.
