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

There are many different kinds of pronouns.

Hi Sir,
I'm working in a corporate school as a English teacher for grad 5th to 7th. There are grammar books for academic curriculum; at the title of those books are written as English grammar skill book. At my student life I have learn the book in school was English Grammar and composition book. Sir please let me know whats the difference between the "composition book & skill books" ?

Hi Imran 26,

The titles of books are determined by publishers and by whatever traditions exist in a particular place, as it's important to meet the expectations of students and parents. In a British context, 'composition' refers only to writing, while 'skills' would describe all four language skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening.

thank you Sir.

Hi
I think 'had' is the correct option. The sentence is in the reported speech, with a past tense reporting verb, 'said'. As such the reported part too should have a past tense verb.

Sir,
A Student belongs to a university distinguish me about IT & Software Engineering like that way; " IT guys does the developing work while the
Software Engineers does the programming job"
I could make sense with it why did she use " while" in this sentence.

Hello Imran,

In this sentence, 'while' means 'but', which is one of several meanings of this word (if you follow the link, you'll see the definition and examples for this meaning, but if you move up and down the page you will see the others). Please note that in this sentence, the verb should be 'do' instead of 'does', since 'IT guys' and 'software sngineers' are plural subjects.

All the best,

Sir,
In school time I have read different kinds of noun like,abstract noun,materials noun & other. but I haven't found such kind of noun here.
Please let me know the purpose. thank you.

Hi Imran,

Our grammar covers what its author (Dave Willis) thought were the most essential points learners need to become proficient speakers. It is not a comprehensive grammar -- a complete grammar of English would be very large and would not really fulfil the purpose of our site.

The Wikipedia and Cambridge Dictionary websites are good places to begin checking some topics such as the ones you mention. For example, the Wikipedia Noun page has a section on abstract and concrete nouns and the Cambridge Dictionary page on Nouns also explains this to some degree.

If you have any specific questions about a particular point, please let us know.

All the best,
