  • Neither is grammatical as written. You really should wait to accept an answer until you get more feedback. In addition, please edit your question to explain why you find this grammar confusing, otherwise it may be closed as proofreading. – Andrew Nov 30 '18 at 2:30

Wife is, of course, his wife. So when he checked her mobile, he checked his wife mobile.

    It's a bad idea to simply answer a question without addressing its multiple grammatical errors. Moreover the question should have included more detail to explain why this grammar is confusing, otherwise it's just proofreading. – Andrew Nov 30 '18 at 2:28

    @Andrew: If a question Needs More Details, there's no need to call it proofreading, especially when there is no intent to look for proofreading. A question that puts specific emphasis on particular words, but doesn't explain the potential problem or confusion, may indeed need to be closed until this is clarified, but the reason has nothing to do with proofreading, and calling it such is a confusing misuse of the close reason. – Nathan Tuggy Nov 30 '18 at 3:11
