Pronoun : English for SBI IBPS Bank PO/ Clerk Exams


Let’s understand Pronoun with the help of following examples:

Example 1 : Ram is a good boy. Ram is my friend. Ram’s father works with my father.

Example 2 : Ram is a good boy. He is my friend. His father works with my father. 

Instead of saying ‘Ram’ repeatedly, ‘He’ & ‘His’ are being used as the substitute in second example, which doesn’t make any changes in the sentence.

Words which replaces noun are called pronoun.

Examples of pronouns: I, He, His, Them, It, You etc.
