    Explanation
    Interrogative pronouns are pronouns that are used to ask questions. They are nosy and personal because they are used to inquire about specific people, things, or information. Unlike other pronouns, interrogative pronouns do not have an antecedent. Instead, the answer to the question serves as the antecedent for the pronoun. Therefore, the correct answer is Both A & C because both statements A and C accurately describe interrogative pronouns.

    Correct Answer
    A. A word that takes the place of a noun.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "A word that takes the place of a noun." A pronoun is a word that is used to replace a noun in a sentence, helping to avoid repetition and make the sentence flow more smoothly. Pronouns can refer to people, places, things, or ideas, and examples include words like "he," "she," "it," "they," and "we." By using pronouns, we can refer to something or someone without having to constantly repeat their name or noun throughout the sentence or paragraph.

    Correct Answer
    C. The word a pronoun replaces.
    Explanation
