Possessives: pronouns

Undefined

Level: beginner

Subject Object Possessive adjective Possessive pronoun
I me  my mine
you you your yours
he him  his his
she her  her hers
it it its -
we us  our ours
they them  their theirs

 

Be careful!

Possessive pronouns do not have an apostrophe:

Is that car yours/hers/ours/theirs?
(NOT Is that car your's/her's/our's/their's?)

We can use a possessive pronoun instead of a full noun phrase to avoid repeating words:

Is that John's car?
     No, it's mine.
 (NOT No, it's [my car].)

Whose coat is this?
     Is it yours? (NOT Is it [your coat]?)

Her coat is grey.
     Mine is brown. (NOT [My coat] is brown.)

We can use possessive pronouns and nouns after of. We can say:

Susan is one of my friends. > Susan is a friend of mine.
(NOT Susan is a friend of me.)

I am one of Susan's friends. > I am a friend of Susan's.
(NOT I am a friend of Susan.)

Great ,make it ! my score :100%

Hi my friends I hope to make conversation with any on in this sit

Exaclty...We generally use such types of construction in case of non-living things. eg. wheel of car, handle of door. Isn't it ungrammatical?

An example can be "This is my pencil, this other it´s yours"???????

This is my pencil, this other is yours.

Hello, sound icon doesn't work?

Hello lee su gon!
 
Not all of our exercises have sound! The icon is greyed out, so it's not supposed to work - don't worry about it, but feel free to tell us if you think you've found a problem!
 
Thanks,

Hi,
The possessive pronouns are at the top of the table - you should work out yourself where they go.
