EXPRESSING Ownership; Using possessive pronouns as singular correctly.

Let us understand the meaning of pronouns.

Pronouns are words that are used to replace a noun or used instead of a noun.

For instance,

  • Tolu is my cousin.                                                    She is my cousin

Tolu is a noun.                                                         She is used here instead of Tolu.

  • Terry, Berry and Pressy are in the car.                       They are in the car.

Terry, Berry and Pressy are Nouns                             They is used here instead of the nouns.

  • The book is for Tessy                                              The book is for her

Tessy here is a noun                                              Her is used here to replace Tessy.

In pronouns, we have possessives.

This is mine                                        The ball is mine

Is this yours?                                      The pot is theirs.


Complete these.

  1. This is my cap. It is mine.
  2. That is your pot. It is ____________
  3. This is his bicycle. It his __________
  4. It is her dress. It is _______________
