    They all are correct with the exception of number 3. It should be La niņa chicita tiene seis aņos. You have to add niņa ( meaning girl), because chicita just means little one. Itīs implied that whoever is the little one is a female; but whether she is an small adult woman or a child is ambiguous without adding the word niņa. In extreme, rare cases, It could get even be more confusing, because the adjective chicita could be use to modify feminine objects and concepts. Also saying chicita to a person (usually said to a girl or woman but some use the word to harass men by emasculating them) can be seen as cheeky to both men and women. E.g. Hola, chicita which is the equivalent to hey baby.
