Pronouns are words we use in the place of a full noun.

There are many different kinds of pronouns.

Sir, What is the best and more acceptable way to say this thing, ( .1 Not that many people go there, As many as come here) ( 2. There don't go there, As many people as come here) (3. There go a small number of people there than here) (4.Here come a large number of people than here) ? And tell me what mistake I'm making here forming these sentences and if all are wrong, then what is right ? Please help

Hello SonuKumar,

I'm afraid I don't understand what you are trying to say. You need to explain the situation (how many places there are and how many people go to them) and then perhaps we can help you.

We're happy to try to help you find the language for a particular situation you might need but it's not possible for us to explain and correct lists of sentences like this. That is something you might do together with your teacher, not via the comments section on a page like this.

Which is correct 1- Driving cars causes air pollution

2- Driving cars cause air pollution and Why ??

Hello safawad,

The subject here is 'driving cars' and that is a singular form because 'driving' is singular; 'cars' just tells us what kind of driving it is. Therefore the verb must also be singular and 'causes' is correct.

Could you explain please the use of the present tense in the following sentences:
1. It's time we took action to stop the forgery.
2. It's time I was leaving.
It's not clear enough for me why It's time is used here and not it was time.
Thank you in advance!

Hello Ellenna,

'it's time + subject + past simple' is a kind of fixed expression. The first verb is always 'is' (or possibly 'was' if we are talking about the past, but that is not so common I think) and the second verb is in the past simple, even though it's suggesting a present or future action.

Many people were mad there and, Many of them were mad there. Now is there any difference between these two sentences except writing difference and yes, One last question, Could you please tell me if the word Too is used for the subject I or for verb stumble in this sentence " The road of life is hard, You may stumble too" ? Please help

Hello SonuKumar,

'many people' and 'many of them' could mean the same thing, but don't necessarily mean the same. The second one is also more specific than the first.

In the 'road of life' sentence, it's not clear which word 'too' is modifying -- as you suggest, it could be either 'you' or 'may stumble'. If you wanted it to be clear that it modifies the subject, you could say 'you, too, may stumble'.

Sir, In this sentence, Three of them are my brothers. It means that, There are some boys but three of them are my brothers but, If I say that, The three of them are my brothers so, Does it mean that, There are just three boys and, Does The make difference or not and, Are there some more way to say this thing, If I have more then two or three brothers ?
