What will be the adjective ending for the plural form of nouns that end with this one--> for example: Das Sofa the plural form is "Die Sofas" should i just omit the letter "n" for this word? I got confused by the rule of applying the "n" at the end of the word like: "Die netten Kindern".

    Why do you want to add a 'n'? Can you clarify your question? I don't understand what you are asking. – Robert Apr 1 '17 at 22:01
  • Von welcher Regel redest Du? "Die netten Kindern" ist auch falsch. – user unknown Apr 2 '17 at 9:46
  • Yes.I know now that what was stated above was indeed wrong!! Thank you for widening my understanding. – Snailee Apr 2 '17 at 10:34

It doesn't matter which plural form a particular noun uses, the rules about which adjective ending to use don't require this information. So it's for nominative

das Sofa -> die Sofas -> die netten Sofas
das Kind -> die Kinder -> die netten Kinder

and for dative

dem Sofa -> den Sofas -> den netten Sofas
dem Kind -> den Kindern -> den netten Kindern

"Die netten Kindern" is wrong, no matter how you look at it.

For a table of adjective endings in strong/weak/mixed inflection, see e.g. wikipedia.
