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

There are many different kinds of pronouns.

Hello sir, can you please tell me if an adjective can be used interchangeably with a determiner?
Example sentence:
There is 'a lot of' sense in what you say. Here can 'a lot of' be said to be an adjective of quantity or is it only a determiner?

Hello amrita_enakshi,

'a lot of' is a quantifier, which is essentially a type of determiner, not an adjective.

Sir, Most of the times when you listen that song on radio, that is made to play by me or (made played by me) what should I use here and Could I also say "That get played or have played by me"
"that get to or have to play by me" ?

Hello SonuKumar,

I think most people would typically say 'the song that I played'. The context makes it clear that you didn't perform the sing by singing and playing instruments.

Hello sir , I have a query regarding a prepositional phrase, 'in front'. Sir shouldn't we say 'look in front' rather than 'look front' ? For example :
Look in front , join your hands and start the prayer.

Hello amrita_enakshi,

It's not completely clear to me what is meant here, but yes, I'd probably say 'in front' or 'in front of you' and not 'front'.

Sir please pardon my inability to explain clearly. Actually I wanted to clarify the usage of the prep phrase 'in front of'. We do say 'look back' , 'back' being the preposition whereas for the preposition 'front' we say 'look in front' , don't we?
Example sentence : Look in front , Join your hands and start the prayer.
Isn't it incorrect to say 'look front......prayer.

Hello amrita_enakshi,

There are different phrases you can use here. The most common here would be 'Look to the front' or 'Look forwards', I think. The opposite would be 'Look to the back' or 'Look behind you'. You might say this when you are giving an instruction to a group of people as to where they should be gazing, for example.

The phrase 'look back' tends to be used in other contexts. You can say 'Look back down the road' or 'Look back where you had come from' - in other words we use it when we there is movement involved. It can also have a metaphorical meaning when a person 'looks back on their life'.
