Wo Ist Mein Autoschlüssel

Hi All, I've nur started using chatterbug.com and I discover it easier and more fun to use than Duolingo zum picking up vocabulary, but I am still struggling zu get to grips through grammar rules... Here ist one native Chatterbug that has actually me stumped:

Q: Where zu sein the automobile key? i don't uncover it.

Du schaust: Wo ist mein autoschlüssel

A: woher ist ns Autoschlüssel? Ich finden ___ nicht

My frühen zeitpunkt reaction zu sein to analyze "it" zu "es", yet no, ns correct answer is "ihn". Ich thought "ihn" was a form of a angestellter pronoun "him"? Or is this completely die wrong way zu think about this?

Edit: Wow thanks zum all the super friendly beneficial replies everyone, ich really appreciate your help! :-)

I assumed "ihn" was a form of a angestellter pronoun "him"?

Gender in German works various from English. Bei English you use "him" zum male persons (and pet or humanized objects), "her" zum female people (ditto), and "it" weil das everything else. In German, every noun has a gender und it's quite arbitrary. Schlüssel zu sein masculine, and therefore you use "ihn" (him).

'der Autoschlüssel' zu sein masculine, dafür you kann use 'ihn', just like how 'er' zu sein masculine deshalb you usage 'ihn' zum that as well.

Although, this ist not necessary, it's well if sie use 'es' instead.

EDIT: apparently it's notfall fine kommen sie use 'es' instead. Out of all the places I've to be corrected, I've never ever been corrected there. Thanks, die more you know.

Akkusativ: wen/was? ns Akkusativ von "er" (der Schlüssel, maskulin) ist "ihn". Was finden ich nicht? Ich finde ihn nicht.

OP wasn't having a situation problem, yet a gender problem.
