    Genitive Case Question

    So I have reached a point in my Russian language book where it explains that after два/две три and четыре you should use genitive plural adjectives with genitive singular masculine/neuter nouns and nominative plural adjectives with genitive singular feminine nouns.

    Ex: три новых слова.
    четыре новые книги.

    Does the rule also apply in situations, for example: около новые книги.
    около новых галстука.

    Don't know about the rule but:

    около новых книг
    около новых галстуков

    Yes, it's genetive and don't forget to properly conjugate all the related words, both an adjective and a noun it relates to for that matter.

    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.
