    I have a question about using ה with אותו

    ie. what is the difference between:

    זה לא אותו הצבע
    זה לא אותו צבע


    זאת לא אותה עוגה
    זאת לא אותה העוגה

    Thanks for your help.

    I think the correct is with ה הידיעה:
    זה לא אותו הצבע
    זאת לא אותה העוגה
    though the people tend to use both.

    Israel, Hebrew
    It's like the use of זה:

    ילד זה; הילד הזה - in Hebrew both mean this child.

    As far as I know, the correct one, as GeriReshef said, is with ה היידוע, but in everyday use you could hear it mostly without ה' היידוע.
