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

There are many different kinds of pronouns.

Thank you so much Sir.
I know I keep bothering but I would like to write impeccable English. So sir could you please be kind enough to help me with the following sentences:
•Look there , that is an elephant.
•Look there , it is an elephant.
Is 'that' a demonstrative determiner and 'it' a pronoun or 'that'and 'it' are both determiners.

Thank you so much Sir.

Sir , I have a confusion with the tense order of these sentences:
They are supposed to be written in past tense or past continuous.
•She said that they were moving (move) to Canada soon.
•Did you know (know)where Vijay lives? He said he was coming (come) back home today.

Hello Amrita,

The verb forms in those sentences are all correct. 'were moving' and 'was coming' are past continuous and 'did ... know' is past simple. Well done!

Hello amrita,

That's great that you have such a lofty goal. We're happy to help you, but I want to suggest that you tell us what you think when you answer questions. First of all, it makes you think (and therefore learn) more, and it also helps us see what you understand or don't understand. It will only help you in your reaching your goal.

But to answer your questions, in both sentences, 'that' and 'it' are pronouns. Determiners go directly with nouns, whereas here both words are the subjects of the verb 'is'.

All the best,

Dear Sir,
Kindly let me know about Diphthongs & Vowel, citing with their difference.

Hello Imran 26,

This is a difficult thing to explain well in writing, but briefly a diphthong is a sound produced by combining two or more vowels. To learn more, I'd recommend you take a look at the BBC's The Sounds of English page, where there are lots of videos that demonstrate the sounds. Start with one of the vowels pages and I expect this difference will be explained in more detail.

Good luck!

All the best,

Sir, Sometimes I get confused badly when I see the addictive more with the and it is used double in two sentences with The like-
"The more money they have the more they want" or "The more you read the more You will be familiar with the spellings of English words" Now The problem is that I think these sentences could be made like this as well-
"They want as much money as they have" or "You will be familiar with the spellings of English words as much as you read" Is it right ? And I also think that the same thing can't be applied if two comparative adjective are unlike like the harder and the earlier unlike the more and the more is it right ? and can it always be done with "the more and the more" I mean is "the more and the more interchangeable with as much as" always ?

Hello SonuKumar,

The meaning here is a little different to what you suggest.

The more they have, the more they want means that they are never satisfied. More money just makes them more greedy.

The more you read the more you will be familiar with the spelling of English words means that reading always improves your knowledge of this; increasing reading increases knowledge.
