Today we are going to learn about possessive pronouns. Some possessive pronouns examples will also be listed here. So let’s go.
Pronouns that are usually used instead of possessive adjectives (e.g. my, our, their, his, her, its etc) to denote ownership or rights are called possessive pronouns.
That is, a pronoun that implies the rights of a person, object or animal is called a Possessive Pronoun. For example: my, our, your, their, Yours, its, his, her, hers etc.
This is my book. >> This is mine. Here mine is sitting instead of my book.
