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

There are many different kinds of pronouns.



I Need your help. I´d rather prefer the sentence “ There’s red wine or white. Which one would you prefer? ” Instead of “ There’s red wine or white. Which would you prefer? ” that appears as exercize. Would you tell me is there any mistake?. Thank you so much

Hello Slow Learner,

Both are correct. 'Which one' is the full form, but the word 'one' is often left out in questions, especially in speaking, and it's fine.

Hello sir,

Pleas clarify the below.

I read that when singular noun (subject) is joined with other words with the help of 'with' & 'as well as', we should use the singular verb. So,

1) I, with my brother am injured.

Is it OK, I feel a little awkward in spelling it. If not please let me know what is correct.

Hello suryachaitanya,

As far as I know, a plural verb should be used in a sentence like 'My brother and I were injured'. There may be some specific situations in which that isn't true, but I can't think of any off the top of my head.

Please, forgive me if I'm not posting my comment in the righ place, but I don't seem to be able to do better (hints will be greatly appreciated).

If I am not mistaken, sentence no. 4 in the Task section of Listen&Watch / Stories&Poems / Eye Halve a Spelling Chequer is incorrect. It reads:

"In the library, reading ALLOWED is not ...... (aloud / allowed)"

shouldn't it read:

"In the library, reading ALOUD is not ...... (aloud / allowed)" ?

I enjoy your site very much! Thank you!

Hello birba

thank you Sir, Peter.

Sir, I have a question to ask you, I have found the mean's of word "Afraid" in dictionary that is " fear" and " fear of some thing" but I have listen to peoples they says on phone call that " I am afraid the Boss is not in office at the moment." Sir in this sentence the word Afraid=sorry , let me know the correct sense and use of it.

Hello Imran 26,

Those meanings are correct: 'afraid' as an adjective means 'frightened'. However, in the phrase 'I'm afraid that...' it means the same as 'I'm sorry that...' and is a way of telling someone some unfortunate news or apologising for something not being as they would like it to be.

1)Hectic schedules can take a toll on anybody and the solution to this is (c)/ a quick holiday to some exotic location.

sir 'some' is singular or plural
My question is that some exotic location/locations or both are correct?
2)District police arrested a gang of notorious robbers who were planning to strike at a house in the vicinity.
Sir subject is district police object is robbers so 'whom' is the apt word?

Without science there is no future for any society. Even with science, (unless/if).... it is controlled by some spiritual impulses, there is no future.
unless=if not . I think 'if' is the apt one
