    Trophy Points:
    A pronoun can replace a noun or another pronoun. You use pronouns like "he," "which," "none," and "you" to make your sentences less cumbersome and less repetitive.

    Grammarians classify pronouns into several types, including the personal pronoun, the demonstrative pronoun, the interrogative pronoun, the indefinite pronoun, the relative pronoun, the reflexive pronoun, and the intensive pronoun.

    Subjective Personal Pronouns

    A subjective personal pronoun indicates that the pronoun is acting as the subject of the sentence. The subjective personal pronouns are "I," "you," "she," "he," "it," "we," "you," "they."

    In the following sentences, each of the highlighted words is a subjective personal pronoun and acts as the subject of the sentence:

    We will meet at the library at 3:30 p.m.
    It is on the corner.

    Do you understand this simple English word? Let's try it in another sentence

    Fiat SpA (F), majority owner of Chrysler Group LLC, plans to return Jeep output to China (Possessive noun) and may eventually make all of its(possessive pro noun) models in that country.
    Is this clear?
