    A ______________ is a word to take the place of a noun that names one or more persons or things.

    Explanation
    A personal pronoun is a word used to replace a noun that refers to one or more individuals or objects. It is a type of pronoun that is used to avoid repetition and make sentences more concise. Personal pronouns include words like "he," "she," "it," "they," and "we," among others. These pronouns are used to refer to specific individuals or groups without explicitly stating their names or identities.

Second person pronouns refer to the person(s) being spoken to and include pronouns like you, your, and yours. Third person pronouns refer to other person(s) or thing(s) being spoken of and include pronouns like he, his, him, she, her, hers, it, they, their, theirs, and them.

    What are personal pronouns also classified by?

    Explanation
    Personal pronouns are also classified by gender. This means that pronouns can be categorized as either masculine, feminine, or neuter, depending on the gender of the person or object being referred to. The use of appropriate gender pronouns is important for respectful and inclusive communication.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Pronouns in the _____________ refer to MALE people.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "masculine gender" because pronouns are words used to replace nouns, and in this case, they specifically refer to male individuals. The masculine gender encompasses words like "he," "him," and "his," which are used to represent males.

    Rate this question:

  • 5.

  • 6. 

    Pronouns in the _________________ refer to ANIMALS OR THINGS.

    Explanation
    Pronouns in the neuter gender refer to animals or things. Neuter gender is used to categorize nouns that do not have a specific gender, such as objects, concepts, or animals that are neither male nor female. In English, pronouns such as "it" are commonly used to refer to nouns in the neuter gender. This is because neuter gender does not indicate a specific sex or gender identity, but rather denotes a lack of gender distinction.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What three forms does a personal pronoun have?

    Explanation
    A personal pronoun can take on three different forms: subject form, object form, and possessive form. The subject form is used when the pronoun is the subject of a sentence or clause, such as "I," "you," or "he." The object form is used when the pronoun is the object of a verb or preposition, such as "me," "you," or "him." The possessive form is used to show ownership or possession, such as "mine," "yours," or "his." These three forms allow personal pronouns to fulfill different grammatical roles in a sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A personal pronoun is used in the ___________ (1) when it is a subject or (2) when it follows a linking verb as in a predicate pronoun.

    Explanation
    A personal pronoun is used in the subject form when it is functioning as the subject of a sentence or clause. It is also used in the subject form when it follows a linking verb and acts as a predicate pronoun. In both cases, the pronoun is used to represent the person or thing that is performing the action or being described in the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    What are the the types of subject forms of the personal pronouns.

    Explanation
    The correct answer lists the subject forms of personal pronouns, which are used when the pronoun is the subject of a sentence. The subject forms are "I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they." These pronouns are used to refer to the person or thing performing the action in a sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    A personal pronoun is used in the ________________ (1) when it is the direct or indirect object of a verb or (2) when it is the object of a preposition.

    Explanation
    A personal pronoun is used in the object form when it is the direct or indirect object of a verb or when it is the object of a preposition. In these cases, the pronoun takes on the object form to show its function in the sentence. The object form of a pronoun typically includes words like "me," "you," "him," "her," "it," "us," and "them." These pronouns receive the action of the verb or are the recipients of the action in the sentence. They also show the relationship between the pronoun and the preposition.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    What are the object forms of the personal pronouns?

    Explanation
    The object forms of personal pronouns are used as the object of a verb or a preposition in a sentence. "Me" is the object form of "I", "you" is the object form of "you", "him" is the object form of "he", "her" is the object form of "she", "it" remains the same, "us" is the object form of "we", "you" remains the same, and "them" is the object form of "they". These pronouns are used to refer to the person or thing that is affected by the action of the verb or the preposition.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    The ______ of a pronoun is used to show ownership? How many groups are there?

    Explanation
    The possessive form of a pronoun is used to show ownership. There are two groups of possessive pronouns: the first group includes my, your, his, her, its, our, and their; the second group includes mine, yours, his, hers, its, ours, and theirs. These pronouns indicate that someone or something belongs to someone else.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    What are the two groups of possessive form? What pronouns do they include? Bring one example for each type.

    Explanation
    The question asks for the two groups of possessive forms and the pronouns that they include. The first group consists of personal pronouns used as adjectives to modify nouns, such as my, your, his, her, its, our, yours, and their. An example of this is "The mayor came to our house." The second group includes personal pronouns used as subjects, predicate words, or objects of verbs or prepositions, such as mine, your, his, hers, its, ours, yours, and theirs. Examples of this group include "This pen is yours" (predicate word), "Hers has blue ink" (subject of verb), "Len can't find his" (object of verb), and "Something is wrong with mine" (object of preposition).

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    What do you do whenever you are in doubt about which form of the pronoun to use in a compound sentence part? What do you do next? 

    Explanation
    The correct answer suggests that when in doubt about which form of the pronoun to use in a compound sentence part, one should drop the noun and read the sentence with just the pronoun. By doing so, it becomes easier to determine the correct form of the pronoun. If there are two pronouns in the compound part, the sentence should be read for each pronoun separately to choose the right form. The sample answer provides an example of this process where "him" is the correct form for the first pronoun and "me" is the correct form for the second pronoun.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    What can you only use after forms of "be" as predicated pronouns? 

    Explanation
    After forms of "be" as predicated pronouns, you can only use I, you, we, he, she, or they. In the given sample answer, "MANDY and I" is the correct choice because it follows the rule of using "I" after the verb "be" as a predicated pronoun.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Name Possessive Pronouns. Do they sound the same as these contractions: it's, you're, they're, and who's?

    Explanation
    Possessive pronouns are used to show ownership or possession. In this case, the possessive pronouns "its," "your," "their," and "whose" are used to indicate ownership. These pronouns do not sound the same as the contractions "it's," "you're," "they're," and "who's." The contractions are formed by combining the pronouns "it," "you," "they," and "who" with the verb "is" or "are," while the possessive pronouns stand alone to show ownership.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Why are the possessive pronouns an the contractions sometimes confused?

    Explanation
    The possessive pronouns and contractions are sometimes confused because they sound alike. This similarity in sound can lead to confusion when determining whether to use a possessive pronoun or a contraction in a sentence. For example, "it's" can be both a contraction for "it is" and a possessive pronoun for "belonging to it." Similarly, "your" can be a possessive pronoun for "belonging to you" and "you're" can be a contraction for "you are." This similarity in sound can make it challenging to differentiate between the two, leading to confusion.

    What is a demonstrative pronoun?

    Explanation
    A demonstrative pronoun is a type of pronoun that is used to point out or identify specific people, places, or things in a sentence. It helps to single out and distinguish the noun it refers to from other nouns. Demonstrative pronouns include words like "this," "that," "these," and "those." They are used to indicate proximity or distance in relation to the speaker or the context of the sentence. For example, "This is my book" or "Those are my shoes."

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Name demonstrative pronouns; explain each one. Bring examples of sentences with each of these pronouns.

    Explanation
    Demonstrative pronouns are used to point out specific people or things. "This" is used to refer to a singular object or person that is close to the speaker, while "these" is used to refer to multiple objects or people that are close to the speaker. On the other hand, "that" is used to refer to a singular object or person that is farther away from the speaker, and "those" is used to refer to multiple objects or people that are farther away. The examples provided demonstrate the usage of each pronoun in sentences.

Reflexive pronouns are used when the subject and object of a sentence refer to the same person or thing, emphasizing that the action is done by the subject to itself. Intensive pronouns, on the other hand, are used to emphasize a noun or pronoun in a sentence. The pronouns in the list can be used in both reflexive and intensive contexts.

    Rate this question:

    Explanation
    A reflexive pronoun is used to refer back to the subject of the sentence and emphasize that the subject is performing the action on themselves. In the given example, "himself" is a reflexive pronoun because it refers back to the subject "Mike" and emphasizes that he did not hurt anyone else but himself when he fell.

    The meaning of a sentence is "complete "without" the reflexive pronoun Is the statement above true or false? If false change the underlined word to make it true.

    Explanation
    The given correct answer is false; incomplete. This means that the statement "The meaning of a sentence is 'complete' without the reflexive pronoun" is not true. The word "complete" should be changed to "incomplete" in order to make the statement true. This suggests that the presence of a reflexive pronoun is necessary for the sentence to have a complete meaning.

Without the reflexive pronoun, the sentence may not convey the intended meaning or may be grammatically incorrect.
