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

There are many different kinds of pronouns.



May I ask the purpose of a passage here? I know nowhere but here this great site to ask this question so please answer why letter A is not the answer (I understood the best answer is letter D.)

As one of our most aggressive sales representatives, you have an enviable record and I expect you will be up for an award at the end of the year. The flip side of this aggressiveness is, unfortunately, a certain abrasive attitude that has been reported by several customers lately. I'd like to suggest two things. One, come in and talk this over with me. I can give you some idea of how people are responding to you and why it's a problem over the long-term if not the short-term. Two, spend a day or two with Tom Jerningham. He has a manner that is effective without being too insistent. Let me hear from you.

A. to develop and share expertise about sales strategies.
D. to urge that he or she improve attitudes on customers and have counselling sessions.

Hello Gary_Lee,

Thanks for your comment, but I'm afraid we don't generally comment on answers to materials that we haven't produced ourselves. In any case, I don't see what the question is. Presumably you have to select the answer that best describes the text. A doesn't include the idea that the person who go the message needs to learn from Tom, which seems to be an important point.

Hope this helps.

All the best,

I have a question.the sentence below
"You didn't talk to jack each other",Is this correct? Why the answer is"You didn't talk to each other"? Thanks!

Hi renusi,

I'm afraid there's a mistake in your sentence as 'jack' doesn't make sense here. Perhaps you meant 'just':

You didn't talk to just each other

In this sentence 'just' means the same as 'only' and shows that 'each other' is not very much or is not enough. It sounds like the speaker thinks you should have spoken to more people than 'only each other'.

dummy subjects
the sentence "here are the people" is elliptical
"(over) here are the people" or "the people are (over) here" makes
the correction
is my reasoning reasonable?

Hello fixit86,

The word 'here' in this sentence is not a dummy subject, but rather an adverb. You can see this by trying to make a question form through inversion. When there is a true dummy subject this is possibe:

There is a lot of time.

> Is there a lot of time?

In your sentence this is not possible.

In terms of the meaning, I don't agree that it is unclear or elliptical. The clarity of this sentence comes from the context - presumably the speaker is pointing to a place or a group of people. It is an example of what we call exophoric reference: reference to something outside of the text (in the real world). The sentence does not lack clarity; it merely lacks a context and I don't think the addition of 'over' changes this.

Hello Admin,
I wil say this site is very helpful for me. I am from Hindi medium school and English is my weak point. Right now I am preparing for bank exam like IBPS PO
SBI and other private banks to secure my career. From last two attempts I was failed because of English section, but this time I am sure that I will clear the exam and get good score.
Thanks for sharing grammar daily with us. I always read the your blog of different topics in English and made small notes in my own language so that it will help me.

Hi teachers, i was wondering if these clauses are right: 1)i still remember the day in which I lost my brother 2) yestarday i saw the school i'll be sent to teach to 3)The only city we can go to next week is brighton.

best wishes

Hi rosario70,

The third sentence is correct but I would suggest changing the first two as follows:

1) I still remember the day when/on which I lost my brother

2) Yesterday I saw the school I'll be sent to to teach/where I'll be sent to teach/to which I'll be sent to teach
