Pronoun Exercises

Pronouns are a significant subclass of nouns. They are classified as a subclass of nouns because they can occasionally be used in place of a noun in a phrase.

Pronoun Exercises


Peter got a new job.

Children should limit their media consumption.


He has a new job.

They should limit their media consumption.

Furthermore, we also encompass the pronoun it in this category, despite the fact that it does not normally relate to an individual. Each of the three personal pronouns has a singular and plural form:

Just like in the case of 1st Person - I and we come under singular and plural forms, respectively.

Whereas in the case of 2ND Person - You and You are used for singular and plural forms, respectively.

Also, in the 3rd Person- he/she/it And they come under singular and plural forms, respectively.

Pronoun Exercises

These pronouns have an additional set of variations; these replace or substitute the nouns. In all the three cases the noun is substituted by the pronouns with the appropriate pronouns.

In the case of 1st Person - me and Us. Whereas in the case of 2nd Person, you and you. Also, in case if 3rd Person him/her/it and them is used in Singular and Plural forms respectively.

The first group of forms (I, you, he) represents the SUBJECTIVE CASE, while the second set (me, you, him...) represents the OBJECTIVE CASE. The distinction between the 2 cases is with how they can be utilized in statements.

For instance, in our first instance, we state that he can take the place of Peter.

Peter got a new job- He got a new job.

It is extremely crucial to note that He cannot replace Perter in I gave Peter a new job position. As in this case, we have to utilize the objective form of Him, so the sentence will be I gave him a new job position.
