Pronouns are words that can be used to replace nouns, for example: 'Sally broke the window. How did she break it?' Here, the pronoun 'it' takes the place of 'the window'. Pronouns are words like 'I', 'you', 'me', 'mine' and 'theirs'. By the way, DON'T confuse possessive pronouns such as 'mine', 'yours' and 'theirs' with the corresponding possessive adjectives 'my', 'your' and 'their' - they are NOT the same.

A useful tip when thinking about which answer is correct is to say the phrase out loud putting each of the four answers in the blanks. Which ones sound obviously wrong? Eliminate them.

In this English quiz we are only going to deal with the personal and possessive pronouns; however, there are lots of other pronouns in the English language.
