2.45 Pronouns

A pronoun is a word used in place of a noun. Instead of repeating a noun, use a pronoun. In other words, a pronoun takes the place of a noun in a sentence.

Examples:
I, you, she, and they
Me, him, us, and them
My, your, and their

Each pronoun takes the place of a certain noun. If the noun is singular, the pronoun should be singular. If the noun is plural, the pronoun should be plural.
