Pronouns

Concept: He, She, It, We, They

Definition:

  • Pronouns are those words that are used instead of nouns or noun phrases.
  • Pronouns can be used in place of a noun that has already been used in the sentence or to refer to a noun that does not have to be named specifically. For example, she, he, you, it, we, they, etc.
  • The words ‘He’, ‘she’, and ‘it’ are singular pronouns and the words ‘we’ and ‘they’ are plural forms.
Boy

A) He

Subject pronouns include he, she, it, we, and they. ‘He’ is a singular pronoun which is used to refer to a male.

Examples :

  • He finished the work. Q
  • He is a good boy.

B) She

The pronoun ‘She’ is a singular pronoun which is used to refer to a female.

Examples :

  • She went to the market.
  • She sings very well.

c) It

The pronoun ‘It’ is a pronoun that refers to things, animals, plants etc. It is never used to refer to human beings.

Examples :

  • The toy was with me. I gave it to him.
  • Ravi bought a new car. It is blue in colour.

D) We

The pronoun ‘We’ is used in place of the noun in the sentence. It refers to two or more than two people.

Examples :

  • We walked a long way that day.
  • We are a group of 4 people.

E) They

The pronoun ‘They’ is a gender-neutral pronoun. It is used to refer to other people.

Examples :

  • I tried very hard to make them stay back, but they didn’t listen to me.
  • They are fighting with each other.

Common mistakes:

Never use a different gender, number and person pronoun. Since a pronoun is used in place of a noun or noun phrase, it has to be of the same number, gender, and person, similar to the noun.

Examples :

  1. Hari is my neighbour. He also works in my office. The pronoun “he” is used in place of the noun “Hari”. Since Hari is masculine gender and a single person, he is used. Now, Hari is my neighbour. She also works in my office.
  2. Neha is a good girl. She is my best friend. (Pronoun “she” is used in place of Neha who is a single person and female).
  3. Now, Neha is a good girl. They is my best friend.
